I want to create a mechanical Venus fly trap.  It is like a bear trap but instead of closing in a split second I want it to close very slowly. The spring is what makes it close fast.  What can I replace the spring with to make it close very slowly?

The link below is a tiny key chain bear trap from YouTube.
