Aldrovanda Vesiculosa

Aldrovanda vesiculosa, commonly known as the waterwheel plant, is the sole extant species in the flowering plant genus Aldrovanda of the family Droseraceae. The plant captures small aquatic invertebrates using traps similar to those of the Venus flytrap. The traps are arranged in whorls around a central, free-floating stem, giving rise to the common name. This is one of the few plant species capable of rapid movement.

Love Traps? This is a sweet plant! Can redden a bit and It will capture baby shrimp. Wish I had the picture to prove it.
