Audrey 2 was stolen!

There are a lot of strange things to steal, but this is new.  Two people were caught stealing just under 600 Venus flytraps from a greenhouse in North Carolina.

That isn’t slang for a type of drug or a shoe, the actual plants.

The thieves were planning on selling them on the black market.  It’s unclear what Venus flytraps would go for, but it must be a lot because the thieves were hit with felony charges.

Venus flytraps are rare, but they are native to southeastern North Carolina.  And this IS a time when people try to take them because they’re flowering around now, and that makes them easier to spot in the wild.
