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.

The Cackle Lantern Trap is a Shadow weapon upgraded from the Pumpkin Pummeler.
