Wow!!! That is an absolute beauty!!! Is that muscaria?? Are you going to eat it :smile: I've never seen one that big!! Thats one inch of the supposed max size! good find!

I love amanitas, a great high, especially if you take some cyans a little after taking the ama.

Hey, there...

Cool coincidence, I just found a giant about a half hour ago, while picking some King Boletes. Unfortunately, I got distracted talking to a homeless man and didn't think to take out my camera. But yea, those Amanitas can get very large. This one's probably 10" and the cap is a perfect, dark red amanita muscaria. It's laying out in my truck and maybe I'll take a pic -- but I wish I had though to get a habitat pic.

***Edit 2:18 PM PST, 11/5/2004 *** Here's the pic. Turns out it's only 8" (that's what I get for dick-sizing). BTW, I'll probably dry this one and eat it or make tea, because it, quite literally, appeared "for me".

Take care.
