    Just thought I'd post this excellent example of just how much a capensis leaf can move. This little guy caught a moth and strangled it. Though I doubt it was a very tasty meal...



    And this is just a pic of A Big Pot o' Sticky Goo. I'd hate to be the bug that landed in that.

    Ya, they love wrapping up their prey. I had one that wrapped it's fly up in 40 minutes! Mine usually does a 480 degree wrap.

    Yep Larry...two pots bursting with wickedness. I tried photographing them but they didn't come out. Also wanted a good pic of my D. regia but those sucked too. Hopefully I can get some good ones soon.
