That is what I was thinking but like I said I am very new to this and do not want to make a BAD mistake.

DO NOT EAT THAT MUSHROOM! Amintas can cause liver failure, or death. Looking out for you man!

I dont want to give bad advice or anything. But by the look of those pictures they're the edible type of Amintas. Fly Agaric. Different alkaloids to normal magic mushrooms. And the trip isn't nearly as good. But i used to eat mushrooms that look like that. Dont take my advice, have them ID'd by someone local to you if you can. By they look a lot like Fly Agaric.

Hey, Isdod
In no way is the Fly Agaric edible. What are you talking about?

Fly Argic Edible my ass! [Re: MycoCakeEater]
    #1681710 - 07/03/03 12:09 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I quote Magic-Mushrooms.Net who have a whole section on this "Magic Mushie"

"However, don't confuse psilocybe mushrooms with Amanita Muscaria (fly agaric). There is no psilocybin nor psilocyn in Fly Agaric and we don't consider it a 'real' magic mushroom. "


"The (red with white dots) Amanita Muscaria can cause a very unpleasent experience and health problems. Potential symptoms of Muscarine, an active alkaloid of Fly Agaric and other Amanita's, followed after ingestion as described by The Merck Index are: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache and bronchospasm. With larger doses: acrimation, incontinence, bracycardia, hypotension and shock. Ibotanic acid, also an active substance of the Amanita's may cause brain damage as described by various authors on Public Medline. "

Just another FYI: Named the Fly Agaric because of it's use, when mixed with milk, as a method of killing houseflies. EWWW! :thumbdown:

Thats a classic Amanita muscaria var. formosa. Do not eat unless you're dumb or desperate. Amanita muscaria var. muscaria(pure red cap) is known for it's drunken/rambling state that produces, but var. formosa(yellow/orange cap) produces nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and a drunken state. Not at all worth it. Toss them out.
