Carnivorous Tomato

The tomatoes are carnivorous predators that kills
insects that they trap using the hairy stems by sucking out the
nutrients from them through their roots till they decay and fall!!
Then they use the nutrients for self fertilization!! And guess what though this carnivorous behavior can be sited more in wild tomatoes, it seems that other vegetable like potatoes, nicotiana and petunias are also as murderous as the tomatoes!! Anyways this is definitely a new find that are gonna put all the vegans out there in a predicament!!!
