Venus Fly Trap Rejecting Food

Hi

I have an otherwise healthy looking VFT.. I just snipped its flower off the other day; it got about a centimeter high and I got rid of it.

Anyway, this week I have attempted to feed it a fly and a moth, both of which were a good deal smaller than the trap leaf. In both instances, the trap opened the neg day, with the insect undigested.

Any reason for this? I know it should take like a week for the insect to digest.
