Summary
They lure insects into death traps, then gorge on their flesh. Carnivorous plants deceive, then kill. Bugs are drawn to what look like dewdrops on a sundew, then find themselves entangled in sticky tentacles. A tropical pitcher plant smells sweet to bugs, but its slippery surfaces tumble victims into its open maw. A Venus flytrap snaps shut if its tiny hairs are brushed twice. Like figures in a shadow theater, silhouettes of prey show through a Philippine pitcher plant. And that's just what the plants are up to-travel beyond the white, sandy beaches and clear, blue seas for a look at Hawaii's rare and unique native plants and animals
