Spitter Plants are a subspecies of the Venus Fly Trap enemies that appear in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and the N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the second game. They appear in the levels Diggin' It and Bee-Having.


This plant look very similar to the other species of Venus Fly Trap, but they have spiky roots at the base of their bodies. They also have two leaves sticking out of the back of their heads. The head itself is red in color with many white spots on it.


They stand on one place and constantly spit exploding small brown seeds on the ground. The seeds don't explode on contact with the ground but rather land on one spot and explode after a couple of seconds. If the player is directly hit by one, however, the seed will explode on contact.

They don't seem to have any close-ranged attacks, since they just hide under their leaves when the player is nearby, unlike the regular Venus Fly Traps that always attack when the player gets too close, and show no mercy.

They can only be defeated by a body slam: if the player tries to jump on them regularly he will bounce upward. If the player is underground he can defeat the Spitter Plant with a spin attack.
