What a very cool link! I saved it for future orders! (it helps that they are so close, too)

If you want a carnivorous water plant that if like a venus fly trap check out Aldrovanda vesiculosa (water wheel plant). Here is a little info on this plant.

Thanks for all the encouragement folks! FYI I just posted a photo of a predaceous diving beetle in the invertebrates forum…

I could be wrong...but I was under the impression that beetles made up a significant % of their prey in the wild.
