The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Western Australia in 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

Fast tentacles:
I must have disturbed this Drosera platystigma as I messed with it, because one of its marginal tentacles bent through about 180° as I photographed it. Looking at the time stamps of my images, I saw that it moved through this angle in a little less than 20 seconds!

Speedy little bastard.
