    Hello. Since these are all pictures of a flytrap (green dragon) I thought Id post them here. If you see a big black arrow like thing ignore it, it's just the pointer in the eyepiece.

    This a picture of what i think are the digestive glands of the VFT(100x):



    This is another picture of the digestive glands with a trigger hair on the left side (40x or 100x, i'm not sure):



    A digestive gland under 400x:



    This is a VFT tooth under 400x. I'm not sure what the ball like thing in the middle is:



    And finally a picture of the veins in the petiole (100x):



    Hope you enjoyed these.

    I wonder if the 'ball thing' in the tooth has anything to do with the way it closes? Scientists have been trying to figure that out for a long time!

    Hey pondboy. I wanted one of those microscope cameras that hook up to the computer but they were too expensive. Then Darcie told me in another post that i could just hold a digital camera up to the eyepiece and take a picture that way. So i tried it and it worked very well and that's how i took all these pictures.

    My hypothesis is that it is the cell nucleous and that the tooth is just a long single cell. So no it wouldn't have anything to do with the way it closes.
