I had my camera handy so I thought I may as well take a photo or two.

Top: A young division of Dionaea muscipula 'Pink Venus'
Bottom: D. muscipula 'Green Sawtooth' with an "empty", the exoskeleton of an eaten fly.

My strong personal preference is for the more "normal" looking vfts like your 'Pink Venus' or 'Big Mouth'. That said, Bohemian Garnet is an attractive one. :)

I would have said that this little selection is composed entirely of 'normal looking' Dionaea. There are quite a few mutant ones out there. I think someone who lives next to a nuclear reactor is breeding them.

Thank you young Paul.

This Fused-tooth looks a little more less 'normal' but the fused tooth traps are only grown for a short period in summer. The rest of the time it's quite normal.
