Killer Carnivorous Plants

Killer Carnivorous Plants

Plants sit at the bottom of the food chain. They provide meals for the vast majority of animals on earth, but what if the food chain were upset? Strange as it may sound, there are places on virtually every continent where plants are the hunters and animals the hunted. Some plants move so quickly that insects do not know what hit them. Others lay elaborate traps to lure their prey. Featuring stunning full-color photographs, informative sidebars, and accessible text, this book will fascinate young readers as it introduces them to real meat-eating plants of the world.
