It looks really cool and almost "sponge-like". I'm trying to find out its name and does anyone know where I could get one?

I can't tell ya what it is but I am impressed by the carnage it seems leave in its wake. :-) Do you have any other pics of it at all?

I found the picture on Wikipedia. It's a Pinguicula gigantea, the largest of the butterworts. Here's a link

Wow... no way I could identify it by it's leaves! Even the ones that have grown them for decades struggle with it and wait until it flowers. To me, most of them look all alike!
