Is this a "Devils Snuffbox"?
    #1959090 - 09/28/03 06:57 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Im not sure what they are called but when I was little ther would be a mushroom that would get about the size of a tennis ball. When It dried out we would kick it around and it would send out small clouds of spores.

Is this one of them?



If it is, it is the biggest one that I have ever seen!!!!!

it is a Calvatia no?
to be sure about the species, could you cut it in half if it has not yet exploded with a kansas dust-storm in your face as you bent down to pick it up. also pay attention to the texture and any scales etc. on the surface.

There were several of them in my mothers yard. All my nieces and nephew have kicked them!

Its an urge that they cant resist. :smile:

I hope they will leave this one so they can see what it does when it dries out. :cool:

I will try to get a closer pix of it soon.
