Answer: The Carolinas

Venus flytraps are curious carnivorous little plants that have fascinated generations of American children with their fly-eating ways, snapping jaws, and exotic looks. Surely many of them must have believed that they came from a far off and exotic jungle filled with man-eating plants and other curiosities.

In reality, however, Venus flytraps don’t come from the depths of an exotic jungle far from U.S. soil, but from right within the United States. The only place Venus flytraps are natively found in the wild is within a 75-mile (121-kilometer) radius of Wilmington, North Carolina.

The sub-tropical bogs and swamps of the region host the only native population of the curious plant; a population that has dwindled down to approximately 33,000 wild plants (an amount dwarfed by the millions of cultivated plants in nurseries and terrariums across the world).
