S. catesbei fights back!!!

So I had to transplant a couple of my Sarracenia into larger pots today and I noticed that one of the larger traps of my S. catesbei was "looking heavy". Upon further investigation I noticed the following trap taking matters into it's own hands and fighting back:

The trap on the left is the "fighter"

And here is what he was fighting. I'm just going to say he won to make myself feel good.

It's kinda nice that some of my plants (said sarcastically of coarse) have the ability to hold their own, even if they were not designed to eat snails. And yes I know the snail would have ate his way through but I like to think the S. catesbei was the victor.
nice plant looks well fed lol
I adore these pictures and pitchers haha! Congrats to your fighter!
