Most Aggressive Carnivorous Plant

The Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) is considered by some to be the most aggressive carnivorous plant. This carnivorous plant waits for insects and small animals to walk across the trigger hairs. It snaps shut, trapping its prey. The more the prey struggles, the faster the plant digests the prey.
