275. Carnifruit

Sunrise is home to the planimals, a form of life similar to both the plants and animals of Earth. Planimals are mobile, although slow, and some species (carniflora) have evolved to take on the role of herbivore-predators. A few species, instead of hunting, catch their prey with traps, much like the carnivorous plants of Earth. They also grow fruit, not for seed dispersal, but as bait. They have evolved fruit so tempting it can entice planimals even if they are aware of the trap. "Carnifruit", with a little engineering for human tastebuds and biochemistry, are a fantastic addition to the transhuman pantry.
