  1. Very cool find. I recently saw a video of one in action, like a hand coming out of the trap, grabbing the insect, then retreating and closing, all in a single second. Posted one month ago
  2. Note: had to remove the species ID because the species itself is not visible on the photo. Photo is still great and valuable though. Posted one month ago
