    The leaves of the Dionaea muscipula are bent outwards and acts as an opening for prey. Near the edges of the leaves is nectar which attracts the prey. The hairs near the inside of the leaves acts as triggers for the leaves to close on prey. The leaves seal the prey inside acting like a prison. The digestive process occurs afterwards, the plant secretes [[#|enzymes]] to digest the prey. Digestion takes approximately 10 days to occur, the plant then reopens the trap for another victim.

    The leaves of the Dionaea muscipula are bent outwards and acts as an opening for prey. Near the edges of the leaves is nectar which attracts the prey. The hairs near the inside of the leaves acts as triggers for the leaves to close on prey. The leaves seal the prey inside acting like a prison. The digestive process occurs afterwards, the plant secretes [[#|enzymes]] to digest the prey. Digestion takes approximately 10 days to occur, the plant then reopens the trap for another victim.
    Other Facts:
    If one of the plant's traps catches a very small prey and it manages to escape, the former will reopen within 12 hours.
    The trapping mechanism of Venus flytrap is so sensitive that it can easily differentiate between a living prey and non-prey.
    The Venus Flytrap is considered to be a carnivorous plant that is most commonly recognized and cultivated.
    The plant catches as well as consumes insects in order to gain nitrogen, which it needs for the purpose of protein formation.
    After trapping the prey, if the trap of the plant experiences any movement, it shuts more tightly and fastens the digestion process.
