What Are Some Environmental Adaptations of Venus Flytraps?

The carnivorous Venus flytrap has some very unique and useful adaptations, including digesting small animals, such as flies and spiders, to get nutrients they cannot absorb through the poor soils in their native habitats. Additionally, Venus flytraps have adapted trigger hairs on the inside of their trap pads; when triggered by a bug, the trap will snap shut, making escape impossible.
