Watch a Carnivorous Plant Wrap Itself Around a Bug and Entomb It

Meet the Drosera Capensis, also known as the Cape sundew. It’s a deadly little thing that looks like some sort of alien finger trap but it’s actually a carnivorous plant with sticky tentacles that basically entomb bugs that come across its way. It’s crazy to see how it traps the bug, as if it were first hugging it to paralyze it and then folding vertically to trap it forever.

Getting caught in one of these would suck.
