Sundews glisten with sticky tentacles that glitter like dew, a deceptive beauty that traps insects in a fatal sticky grasp.
Beyond the allure of their traps, these botanical wonders contribute to ecosystems by controlling insect populations and demonstrating fascinating evolution in action.
With their diverse trapping strategies and adaptive significance, carnivorous plants provide a window into the complexity and beauty of evolutionary biology.
