um no.
I dont know if you ever owned one but i have owned over atleast 15 different species of cariv. plants. Mant of which were venus fly traps. The venus fly trap has hairs inside its "mouth". Then these hairs are triggered, this sets the plant off, and the trap seals shut. Then begins a digestive process. Things cant digest unless they eat.(DERP.)

I have pulled out the hollow exo skeleton of flies from mine. They were filled with juices and such when alive but after the plant eats them they just turn into an empty shell.

THE REASON why we have Insect eating plants today is because they were once normal plants, but the soil they lived in was so poor quality, they mutated into animal eating plants so they could aquire the neutrients to survive.
