BLOOD CLOVER              
                          
                                          
 THE   MOSS  COMMONLY  KNOWN   AS  "BLOOD 
 CLOVER"  IS  A CARNIVOROUS PLANT  NATIVE 
 TO NORTHERN EURASIA.  DESPITE  ITS NAME, 
 IT'S   ACTUALLY   A   KIND    OF   MOSS. 
                                          
                                    
                                          
 BLOOD  CLOVER IS  IN  ITS  DORMANT STATE 
  INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM REGULAR CLOVER.  
 WHEN  DISTURBED,  IT  PRODUCES  A  THICK 
 STICKY  SAP  THAT WILL  ENSNARE  ANIMALS 
 THAT ARE  TOO  WEAK TO MOVE AWAY (FROGS, 
 MICE,  INSECTS)  AND  SLOWLY MELT  THEM. 
 THE   PLANT  THEN  FEEDS  OFF   OF   THE 
  NUTRIENTS RELEASED. DURING FEEDING THE  
 LEAVES  WILL  TAKE  ON  A REDDISH  TINT, 
 FROM  WHICH THE  PLANT  GET  ITS  COMMON 
 NAME.                                
                                          
 YOU  CAN  SOMETIMES   SPOT  BLEEDING  OR 
 SCARS  ALONG THE LEGS OF  BIGGER ANIMALS 
 WHO'S LINGERED  IN  THE  MOSS  FOR  SOME 
 TIME.                                
                                          
                                    
                                          
 THE  SAP HAS  BEEN USED FOR TATTOOS.  IT 
 IS REPORTEDLY FAINT BUT PLEASANT  TO THE 
 TASTE,   AND  CAN   OF  COURSE  ONLY  BE 
       CONSUMED IN SMALL QUANTITIES.
