I have some wonderful photos of spider feeding time but before any of my babies eat, there are six other ‘active’ mouths to feed.
Recently I bought myself a new little baby and although it’s only one, it has 6+ mouths….my Dionaea muscipula, aka, Venus Fly Trap. For the first time last week I fed this gorgeous plant 6 size 2 crickets (very, very small, almost pin-head size) and sat watching excitedly as each little mouth closed tightly around its morsel! After only a few days of digestion I notice now that the hungry little mouths are open even wider than before their first feed!
Think I’ll call this one, Hannibal.
