LF058 - Venus Fly Trap (L. Dionaea muscipula)

These sterling silver earrings each feature a Venus Fly Trap head which sits partially open on 1mm .925 wire. The Venus Fly Traps measure 1.5cm x 1cm and the earrings 4.5cm from the top of the ear-hook to the base of the ear-hook.

Quite possibly the most diabolical-looking, and, in turn, most recognizable plant in the world, the Venus Fly Trap stands out among all other species of carnivorous plant. While other “man-eating” plants use water to drown their prey or sticky excretions to trap it, the Venus Fly Trap waits until an unlucky insect happens to trip one of the plant’s trigger hairs which line the inside of its open, bright red ‘mouth’. Then, in a fraction of a second, its jaws snap shut, trapping the insect inside where it is slowly digested by acidic enzymes. Although there are an estimated 3-6 million plants in private cultivation, it has received ‘endangered’ status as only about 36,000 plants are believed to be remaining in the boggy wilds of North and South Carolina. There is no other plant in the world quite like the Venus Fly Trap, and as a result, its popularity has pushed it to the brink of extinction in the wild.
