A giant fly trap plant is named after the smaller plant that it resembles, not for its diet. The giant fly trap eats any living creature of medium size or smaller. Living along river banks and lake shores, it can reach both land and aquatic creatures to feed. Whenever it successfully grabs a creature, the fly trap drags the creature towards its thorny mouths and bites it to death.
A giant fly trap possesses animal-like intelligence. It is smart enough to not attack prey to large for it to handle. The giant fly trap can uproot itself to chase a meal that has escaped and returns to its home in the ground. A full grown giant fly trap can become a dire fly trap over time. The dire fly trap behaves the same but is far tougher. A giant fly trap is olive green in color, is about eight feet tall and weighs 200 pounds. A dire fly trap is about fifteen feet tall and weighs about 500 pounds.
