I am sure we have all seen the picture of a VFT that has eaten a daddy long legs and all the legs are sticking out. Well my PFT red dragon has just pulled off that very act. I went out this morning to check my plants and there are all these legs waving for help. I find it very entertaining in a morbid kind of way.

Ohhhh gawd...you're kidding... :shocked: It takes that long for them to die??? <feeling faint>

I just plucked a baby grandaddy off an osteospermum...hope it stays away from the VFTs.

These plants catch spiders very well. Especially because they are attracted to leftover dead insects in traps. So they are far from "friends", they can't even communicate!

I don't find spiders great when I get bitten or when they make webs in my house.

My VFTs caught a couple of crane flies on their own here while back. Their legs were also sticking out and waiving around. I couldn't believe it took them so long to die. You'd think they would pass quickly but one lived for like 2 days!!! Very interesting stuff.

Sorry, I had to post twice because in the first post, I didn't type out the URL correctly. BOTH URLs are correct in the second one.

Wanna know something cool? I leave my VFT out at night cause its summer here, and I woke up one morning and I came upon a total shock! Over night, a firefly somehow found its way in a trap. When I woke up, I saw the silloete and a little light flickered! I dont have any pics, cause my dig cam ran out of batteries. LOL

Here I was kinda horrified by Pyros description but darned if that didn't happen to two of my traps. Both have looooooong legs dangling out. The first one was still alive. I assume they are granddaddy long legs.

I still say...UGH!
