Where did all the other pumpkins go? Oh yeah, that's right... the Cackle Lantern smashed them all. But, out of the remains of his old companions springs a new friend who understands the rigors of carnivorous planthood: a sprout of the Venus Mouse Trap. Together, these two are ready to smash, swallow, and snare any mouse that dares set foot on their trap-- just don't ask them to share the proceeds once they're done. The immense heat of the lantern occasionally increases Fire Salt drops when hunting in the Jungle of Dread.
