i bought a venus fly trap from home depot about a week ago.  i thought it was one plant, but it looks like 2 or 3 plants potted together.  i was thinking of seperating them and planting them in a bigger pot.  is it hard to do?  i heard they had fragile roots and im worried that i might damage some when i seperate them..  so how would i do it?

I would leave them together for now.They have not had the best growing conditions and are already stressed. I have several that are growing together and it does not seem to hurt the plant. If one starts to die you may want to seperate them then, but I would not do it if they are all healthly.

i would leave them as well...  infact here at petflytrap.com  i see there is the option to have 2 plants in one pot... it is a option available durring purchase process on some plants.  so i am confident that if that was not a good thing, these guys wouldn't do it
