These carnivores have looks that kill

These carnivores have looks that kill | �:
"Creepy, hungry things grow in Charles Lamb's house.
Sticky, hairy plants with pouches and traps lure flies, gnats and spiders to their demise. Bog-loving plants in aquariums also have an appetite for insects.
Carnivorous plants that capture, kill and digest other life forms provide most of the greenery in Lamb's Duluth, Minn., home. The rarer and more unusual the plant, the better.
'They have a beauty,' insists Lamb, 41. 'Most of it is the shape.'
With elaborate clamshell traps, fluted leaves and bristled stems, carnivorous plants are living sculptures, he says."
