This wacky rootless plant feasts off of small aquatic animals and insects. In 0.0005 seconds the unsuspecting prey doesn’t know what happened until it is trapped and being digested in a small bladder, or sac. Bladderworts, also known as Utricularias, trap their victim by creating a suction cup of negative pressure. This spring-like trap action is accomplished by first pushing water out of the bladder. Then once one of its trigger hairs are touched, BOOM! Dinner is served.
