tree trap

here is a funny thing. it’s a tree trap. i’ve read about them, but never seen one in operation before so i sent esther and jane in to demonstrate.
a carnivore tree bends itself flat and reveals its roots. foolish animals (as demonstrated here) then step in to the giant hole left behind. when the moment is right, the tree snaps itself back up vertical thus crushing its prey.
luckily this was a slow one or had already just eaten. either way, nothing happened.
