What does "tips" mean in this sentence ?

"Probably the best known of the carnivorous plants is the Venus flytrap.This plant features unusual
leaf TIPS that look like an inviting place for an insect to rest and offers the enticement of promised food".

Hi wepro,
I love your avatar!

The "tips" are the parts at the very end.

Similar to your fingertips , which are the last parts of your fingers. .

Really, a more accurate word might be the leaf "end," or "termination." Think of, um, a lacrosse racket, or even a tennis racket. Now flatten the handle of the racket into a wide leaf. The part at the end, or tip, is the "trap."

PS - I had to go check the plant currently residing on my windowsill to come up with this Emotion: smile
