    They are all around my yard and they're bigger then the whole plant! I once was watching one, and all the sudden it caught a big grasshopper and ate it live! It was kind of cruel but cool at the same time. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hey Snugluz,

    Your plant looks pretty big - I was wondering how old it is? I'm new to growing VFT's and mine are mostly pretty small, so I want to know how long before I can expect them to get as sturdy looking as yours. Also, I have a bunch of little to medium sized ones in a pot, but I think that after dormancy (or maybe after the next dormancy) I will put them in individual pots. The pictures I've seen of large plants all seem to have their own pots.

    Thanks for the info.

    I was going to post the link I found last year. It was to a site where a guy had posted a picture he had taken of a praying mantis........eating a humingbird it caught. Darn link doesn't work and I didn't save the pic onto my computer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] . If I find it again I'll post it here, but I think the page is gone for good.
