I bet most of us have heard of the possible carnivory of tomatoes and potatoes (granted they would be proto-carnivores), but I don't think enough people talk about the possibility of blackberry bushes being proto-carnivores.Tomatoes and potatoes are firmly not carnivores, they just possess a possible precursor trait (sticky defensive hairs) that could potentially, far in the future, evolve into carnivory.
Blackberries have thorns, that's all, despite silly videos about sheep trapped in brambles.
