    Talking

    I was playing around on my computer's encyclopedia, and typed in venus flytrap When it gave me the info it read like this.
    Quote
    or Venus flytrap; Flowering perennial plant (Dionaea muscipula), sole member of its genus, in the sundew family, notable for its unusual habit of catching and eating insects and other small animals [/QUOTE] Sorry to say, the vft is not I repeat is not a sundew.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    last i checked, venus fly traps are definately not in the sundew family!

    you found this in an encyclopedia? can you send me more info on this (brand, author, ect.)? i'm thinking that i will have to write them and let them know of their mistake, and try to get it corrected.

    thanks,

    erm, Dionaea ARE in the sundew family, the Droseraceae. it doesn't mean they are sundews, but they are closely related!
