does this look normal for a stressed vft?

if you saw my other post, you’d know that my happy vft was uprooted by something - it had dried out a bit but it was still green mostly. I planted it back in and all the symptoms I expected were happening - traps dying, no more growth, etc - was just wanting to get my plant looked at by a more experienced grower. Luckily my baby division wasn’t’t affected and it’s growing just fine.Sorry for bad lighting it’s night rn

Usually from my observations there are a lot of different ways Venus flytraps show stress depending on the unfavorable conditions. There is no real one "stressed look" they can get when in shock. But for yours, it looks to be the way a flytrap would look from being uprooted and put into shock. It should recover in a while. Good Luck.
