"Barfed on by a plant...AWESOME!"-Crash and Eddie's reaction to the plant exploding.
What looks like a mossy patch of ground with tasty looking fruit, is a deadly prehistoric plant. It lifts it's prey into into the air with long vines, then drops them into the space between it's huge red petals and engulfs it's prey. It will begin to secrete digestive juices that result in symptoms such as tingling, itching and others before being melted into bones. The only way to survive is to swim to the bottom, and cut open the round lump that you find there. Inside, there are two capillarie stems. Cutting the red one will result in the plant contracting slightly before digesting even more rapidly, but the blue one, when cut, causes the plant to regurgitate, thus freeing it's victims. The plant digests its victim very quickly, in about 3-5 minutes, unless its blue capillary is cut, causing it to throw up its victims along with lots of juices from its body.
Ice Age: Dawn of the DinosaursEdit
Manny and Diego are nearly eaten by one such plant, and are warned that they will by nothing but bones in 3 minutes, before Buck squeezes in, and cuts the red stem. It very nearly digests the three before Buck is just able to cut the blue one and it splatters them out.
The plant appears in the video game based on the movie where it is the first true boss.It has several battle stages.Once Buck manages to destroy its petals he must reach the core and save Manny and Diego.The plant also makes several hich-pitched screeches during the battle.
