Be Careful!
    #1792142 - 08/08/03 02:47 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Today while crusing around i noticed about 15-20 Amanita Virosa's in a neighborhood lawn... I kinda know these ppl (small town) and know they have small children so i went up and knocked on the door and told them about the deadly mushrooms in there yard.. they were so happy and i showed them in my National Audubon Book and now they are aware of this problem for the future...

So be careful out there all you newbies pickin shrooms.. make sure to get a ID before eating ANYTHING...

ps.. Damn i wish i had a digital camera i saw these from a long ways away

That is cool that you warned those people, man!  You could have very possibly saved some lives by doing so! :laugh:

Maybe it was fate that caused you to see the Amanitas and knock on the door to warn the people about them.

Two thumbs up for you!! :laugh:

Amanitas as a genus grow in association with variety of trees.

Amanita populiphila grows in association with cottonwood.

The Amanita muscarias I find are in association with lodgepole pine.

Oak is definitely a favored tree for Amanitas. Many of the deadly species can be found with oak.

Happy mushrooming!
