No Way Out - 📽 by Kreide Zwerg via @youtube The Venus flytrap has captivated scientists for centuries, perhaps because of how un-plant-like it is. It captures and eats animals. Its leaves look unnervingly like fang-lined mouths. It moves quickly, with each of its traps closing shut in a tenth of a second. It is, as Charles Darwin said, “one of the most wonderful [plants] in the world.” • This is an excerpt from the article in our Story, it's a great read!

Corpse Honey Vulture bees: a small group of three closely related American stingless bee species which feed on rotting meat rather than pollen or nectar. These are the only known bees which do not rely on plant products for food. This unusual behavior was discovered in 1982, nearly two centuries after the bees were first classified. Vulture bees, much like maggots, usually enter the carcass through the eyes. They will then root around inside gathering the meat suitable for their needs. The vulture bee salivates on the rotting flesh and then consumes it, storing the flesh in its special stomach compartment. When it returns to the hive, this meat is vomited and processed by a worker bee, which breaks the meat down into an edible substance resembling honey. This substance is then placed into pot-like containers within the hive until it is time to feed the immature bees. - @wikipedia
