Like other carnivores, the Venus flytrap eats animals to get nutrients that it needs to make molecules such as chapter 2aproteins and nucleic acids.  Other chemical compounds made by the plant cells enable the Venus flytrap to digest the animals that it eats.  These chemicals are similar to the chemicals that allow you to digest the food that you eat.  (McDougal Littell Biology)
