A Chimp’s Trap
$39.00 – $590.00
FROM THE ARTIST: I was inspired to paint a Chimpanzee and venus fly traps because they are highly threaten species in the Congo rainforest. All types of apes are taken from their natural habitat and put into illegal trade for pets, bush meat and science purposes. Many apes are rescued and put into sancutuaries, zoos, or back into the wild. Sadly not all apes are rescued. As humans we share 99% of our genetics with apes. If we are so close to these animals lets help them! Venus fly traps are hard to find in the wild due to human exploitation. Just because it’s an interesting plant doesn’t mean you can dig it up, sell and domesticate it. Yes, carnivarious plant species are popular, but they should be popular in the wild. Not in our homes.
