Crustallus Tendiculae, commonly known as the "Frost Bite" Trap Daisy is a deadly species. They get their name from thir venomous bite that quickly freezes their prey in place long enough for the monster plant to get its fill.They are covered in fur because they are neative to icy climates and are on of the only plants that can thrive in the frozen tundra. Their deep green leaves and purple patches attract prey foraging in the dead of winter and allows the voracious beasts to surprise their victims with a frosty bite.

The Frost-Bite is both hand and machine sewn. The stems are made of sturdy, flexible alluminum wire and the leaves wired felt. The pot is also handmade felt with a foam core to maintain its shape. Its weighted with gravel to keep it from tipping. Its about 13 inches tall by about 17 inches around (leaves)

Hope you guys like em' stay tuned for more to come!

LOVE IT!!!!  Reminds me of a creepy monster show I didn't finish watching (didn't know it was a horror flick), because it began to scare the sh*t out of me, and I don't like to be scared.
