I don't normally post work on my personal account, but this one is weird.

Sundews are carnivorous plants. They eat insects, including caterpillars and other larvae that wander across them. But a fly, Toxomerus basalis, lays its eggs on a sundew. When the larvae hatch, they live their lives on the plant wandering around looking for food.

It's like leaving your kids with a serial killer for a babysitter.
