I Some of these plants entlee Insects Into pockets from which they cannot escape. Others grab them as a mousetrap grabs a mouse. Then they digest their victims In fluids, just as wo digest things.

I meets, and especially ants, are attracted to these pitchers by sweet smelling nectar. As soon as they start smelling around inside, they lose their footing on the slippery surface and tumble down inside and can't get out.

You probably won't find a pitcher plant, but you'll be surprised at the many interesting kinds you do find if you look closely. You can save them by pressing them between leaves of books.
