    Too small maybe? Or maybe the fly was clever and understood the complex techniques of the venusian plant to open again when the trigger hairs aren't stimulated.

    I highly doubt it though. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Probably cuz the fly has to keep moving around to further stimulate the trigger hairs. And when its dead, it cant do that.
    Ive gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, keep me here.

    That explains it then. The trigger hairs weren't stimulated often enough so the VFT opened again. Its a natural adaptation, as the VFT doesn't want to spend time and energy digesting, say a fallen raindrop whcih has stimulated it...but then on the down side it doesn't know when its being fed dead but nutritious prey.
