A lavishly illustrated introduction to meat-eating plants Fresh as a daisy, pretty as a rose: most plants are commonly characterized by their gentle beauty or delicate sensory qualities. Carnivorous plants, on the other hand, are quite literally out for blood. These beautiful yet deadly plants use their singular adaptations--like sweet nectar, mesmerizing colors, or biological restroom facilities--to trap, kill, and eat everything from insects to crustaceans, reptiles to rodents.
