Great picture! How did you get the flytrap to start closing on it? (Or was it photo-swapped?) Would you mind if I downloaded it and posted it on the Puzzle Photography Page (or you could join and post yourself)?

Thanks for posting, made my day :D

They close automatically when something (anything) touches the hairs inside its "mouth" (= modified leaves):

You are welcome to use it. The photo is genuine (like the stag beetle one). As Kelvin shows it closes when you put anything inside. I actually videoed it but it was pretty unexciting so I won't upload it until I can film it scoffing a fly as well.

How could this happen?
Where in the world could this be allowed?
What sick mind could plan this despicable action?

It seems this is another important mission for the.... PUZZLE NINJA!

I hope the bump is ok for this since it was always my intention to add a video but wasn't able to at the time- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQuFK1M2lqA
