Yeah, they go dormant during the winter too.

Yeah, then they're likely about half-way through dormancy right now. The ones that have been indoors for about one month are probably confused and will start growing vigorously soon, but they'll go back to sleep if given the proper conditions to do so.

Flytraps lose a lot of leaves at the end of fall, which turn brown or black and die. But once those dead summer leaves are trimmed off, they look exactly like your plants do with just a few, smaller low-lying leaves that remain green all winter and perform photosynthesis. See the photos in this blog entry I made many years ago for what dormant Venus fly traps look like:

There are before and after photos there of when I trimmed off the dead foliage.
