Meat flowers were carnivorous plants native to Dagobah. A meat flower would bite if touched, but would stop once it had its fill, though the rare larger flowers could devour an adult Human. However, the juice of meat flower leaves could also soothe the bites the flowers themselves delivered.

During his brief sojourn on Dagobah, Zak Arranda received a meat flower from Yoda. Zak later used the flower to distract a member of the cannibalistic Children.
