This is a small five gallon fish tank set up for ember tetras by aquarist Carly Thompson that features an abandoned AT-AT toy at the bottom that given to her by her brother for Christmas. Some more details while I remember seeing a poison dart frog vivarium recently that had
This is a video of Damian from California Carnivores pouring out a hybrid Nepenthes pitcher plant (Nepenthes truncata x Nepenthes lowii) that caught and digested a small rodent, likely a mouse. In the wilds of Borneo, Nepenthes lowii produces a substance that attracts tree shrews, which come and eat the
Because occasionally drunken cheeseburger-eating prayers do get answered, this is the $20 David Hasselhoff Chia Pet available for pre-order from Entertainment Earth (presumably among other places).

Cutting Venus fly trap jaws from the plant then controlling them with a smartphone via electrical impulse: no good is going to come out of whatever the hell direction this research is headed. But is that stopping the scientists at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore from pressing forward? No it
This is a video from The Action Lab experimenting to determine whether a venus fly trap can eat a jelly bean. SPOILER: Yes, and attract a bunch of ants in the days-long process. Jelly beans, huh? I suppose that’s cool if you’re the sort of lowly peasant that hands out
This is another video from Youtuber Soil Cross Sections (previously: the alien movement of a growing pea plant), this time a VERY exciting timelapse of grass growing over the course of 8 days, as constructed from 1,980 individual digital photos. How crazy was that?! “Wow, now where’s the timelapse of
This is a timelapse video from Boxlapse featuring a pea plant growing over the course of 34 days. The germination and root growth is cool enough to watch, but the way the plant’s tendrils move around looking for something to grasp is REALLY something. I like how sometimes it even
