bought a lil plant yesterday, no tags or nothing, have no idea what it is, it looks like a fly trap but the leaves are really thick (cactus-like) and their "mouths" are wide open with another one coming out......

That's a form of Faucaria. According to Wiki (I couldn't remember how to spell it, it states "the name comes from the Latin word "fauces" (= animal mouth) because of the appearance of leaves"). It is a succulent, as to it's care, I don't know anything about caring for them, but with a name you should be able to find something online.
