Record #:
Columbus and Brunswick Counties in Southeastern North Carolina are home to three unusual varieties of insectivorous plants. The Venus Fly Trap, the pitcher plant (Sarracenia), and sundews (Drosera) have each developed unique methods of capturing small animals and insects that once trapped, seldom escape. Brilliant colors, savory tastes, and perfumed aromas combine to lure even the most cautious creatures to their death.
