I KNOW you’re happy that someone’s reblogged me, but there really is no need to email me about it 3 TIMES. It’s not even in quick succession, either! They’ll email me once when it was actually reblogged, again a few hours later, and again the following day! Stop it, tumblrbot! >:C
The holes in the meshwork allow small prey to escape, presumably because the benefit that would be obtained from them would be less than the cost of digesting them. If the prey is too small and escapes, the trap will reopen within 12 hours. If the prey moves around in the trap, it tightens and digestion begins more quickly.
