The reality of a plant eating an animal is incompatible with the rigid pyramidal organization of nature, according which, they differ in the way they eat. Plants are autotrophs (they produce their own food via photosynthesis), while animals are heterotrophs (they are unable to make their own organic molecules and so must eat plants and other animals). The performance includes feeding plants with proteins (eggs) based on Darwin’s experiments described in his Insectivorous plants (1875), the first text proving some plants share animal’s behaviors.
