Anyone here know anything about these?

Mrs Neilll ended up with one as a birthday present and it seems to be either having an identity crisis or it's a vegetarian :lol:

Tried 'feeding' it a fly and it never slammed shut and ate it, also tried with tiny bits of bacon and no cigar there either....are they supposed to do this or have we got a weird one?

there are a number of hairs on the inside that need to be set off in the correct order. They only need 3 hairs to be trigured to close. The other tip is only to water them with Rain water, they like there water to be slightly acidic.
