Carnivorous plants
 
Carnivorous plants  Carnivorous plants are plants that derive some or most of their nutrients (but not energy) from trapping and consuming animals or protozoans, typically insects and other arthropods.
 
These plants have adapted to grow in places where the soil is thin or poor in nutrients, especially nitrogen, such as acidic bogs and rock outcroppings.
 
Charles Darwin wrote Insectivorous Plants, the first well-known treatise on carnivorous plants, in 1875.
