I think that VFTs were the result of genetic experimentation
by the lost civilization of intelligent dinosauroids. After forcing
existing species into near-extinction through over-collecting in the wild
and destruction of habitats, older varieties were "rescued" and altered
via gene-splicing techinques and distributed world-wide via carnivorous
plant societies. The popularity of the plants was due, in part, to the
fact that this species of dinosauroid evolved from meat-eating hunter and
they felt a kinship with the carnivorous plants. The distribution we see
today is what is left after the dino civilization fell and the engineered
plants became naturalized.

My 33 1/3 cents worth ;-)
