Venus Flytraps:Most wonderful plant in the world

These unique plants have been called "Most wonderful plant in the world." They are awesome. They are only found in North Carolina and a small part of South Carolina. These marvelous plants have evolved over time.
One unique feature is that when the inner 3 hair on the inside lobs (3 on each side making 6) are triggered, a mechanism then shuts the trap, trapping insects. But the green rib sticking up from the lobes then overlock. THis makes it even more difficult for insects to escape!
