Drosera pseudohelios

False Sunflowers (Drosera pseudohelios) are a species of carnivorous plant.

It attracts insects and birds with a sweet smell and seed-mimicking “teeth”. When something gets snagged, it snaps shut, trapping prey in a hermetic pouch and filling it with digestive enzymes.

There are rare cases of these plants injuring humans.
