It's finally Halloween time again, which means 13 days of monsters! First is the Man-Eating Plant: The man-eating plant does as its name implies. It attracts its favored prey by smelling exactly like what no human can resist: bacon! The plant even gurgles its stomach acids to sound like sizzling breakfast meats. But humans aren't stupid enough to simply walk into a flower's mouth (even if they're stupid enough to walk into a forest chasing bacon), so the man-eater imitated a corpse to assure the humans it is dead and safe to gawk at ("Hey, maybe the petals taste like bacon! And it'll be vegan!") and not at all notice the vines about to strangle them. The carnivorous flora detests dogs which also get drawn in because of the smell -- too much fur and slobber. Fortunately canines don't follow for the corpse trick, and make marvelous pollinators. ___________________ The "bones" part of the design was inspired by these tree roots I saw as a kid that looked rather like ribs, so much so I fancied them as dinosaur fossils... somehow.
