* *imagine my excitement when I saw a fly buzzing around my house yesterday. *Now before you go thinking simple pleasures for simple minds, you should know that I just recieved my VFT's 2 weeks ago and have never seen one eat before. *I caught the fly, and using tweezers I gently held it in one of the traps. *The trap did close, but it did so very slowly. *I estimate that it took about 10 seconds until it closed enough to pull the tweezers away. *Naturally that didn't reduce my enthusiasm, but I've always been under the impression that they're a little faster than that. *I mean I'm not expecting then to snap shut with a bang or anything, but I can't imagine them being able to catch anything on their own by being that slow. *
Is this normal or is it an indication of a possible problem?
