    I know that some flowers can eat animals... What do you think about it?
    And what other facts do you know?

        Different flowers have different ways of dispersing their seeds.

            I agree, this is how it is going to be, and this is how it is going to look

                              The software avoids increasing the indentation level, unless there are two replies to the same comment. This is to avoid indenting too much (because then the text gets rather narrow, eventually).

                                  Have you considered the counter-argument, yesyesyesyesyes? Respectfully.

                                I disagree. There are plants that eat animals, there are flowers that use insects to pollinate and trap and kill those animals, but no flower that specifically "eats" animals. Eat generally means "digest", and only a few plants have digestive fluids, and they all have some type of trapping mechanism on "leaves", making a trap: venus flytrap, sundews, tropical pitcher plants, sun pitch plants, american pitcher plants, and albany pitcher plant, water wheel, and even bladder warts (and this list isn't complete). But as far as I know, not a single plant digests an insect inside the flower.
