It's a fly's worst nightmare: a Venus flytrap sprouts legs so that it can chase down its prey. But that's not all that happens in this short and charming animated film.

Seth Boyden made Carnivorous Plants as for an assignment at CalArts. The star is Dionaea muscipula, the Venus flytrap. The plant at the end is Nepenthes alata.
