What type of consumer is a Venus Flytrap?
A Venus Flytrap is a secondary consumer. It consumes insects. The insects eat plants and other insects. However, the Venus Flytrap is also a producer. It makes its own food by photosynthesis. That is why it traps and digests insects - to get the nutrients to manufacture its food, nutrients that are missing from the soil it grows in.
