    I'd guess that this is the same mutation that causes leaves to develop two individual traps on a single leaf, except this is more of a mutation of the mutation.
    And time for my favorite quote for things like this...
    "I've never seen anything like that before."

    hmm... so I guess the mutation only effected the one trap. It would have been cool if the leaf pulling had the same traps.

    This also might be a mutation of the mutation for any of the Dionaea cultivars "Mirror", "Cupped Trap", "Fused Tooth", and "Funnel Trap", only this mutation of the mutation was only temporary and was not retained by the plant's genes. Probably the environment, not the genes, influenced the trap to grow this way.

    This reminds me of when my sundew formed a leaf that was split toward the end so it looked like a heart. It also has two pairs of conjoined leaves that look like weird gooey mittens.
