    But there are really screwed up CP's out thee like the triple fanged Bicalcarata. That is either a fake or real but I think it is a fake because go to these two pictures and compare the N.Bicalcarata in them! It is identical! They probably just added an extra fang to make it look good. It did fool me for a second! But then I looked closer and wanted to share with everyone what I found. Look closely! It is the same website so we can start to call them "fakers" [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    go to http://www.theautoappraiser.com/sdcps/triplefang.jpg for the triple fanged Bical.

    Now go hee and look at this Bical. http://www.sarracenia.com/photos2/nbica01.jpg

    Now, compare VERY VERY CLOSLY AND TELL ME WHAT YOU FOUND. Is Von Slaughter at sdcps or autoapprasier.com a fake or does his picture tell the truth? I found it a fake.

    *(sigh)*
    yes, they're all fakes
    The 'professors' with the 'triple bical' have just stolen a picture carefully taken by Barry Meyers-Rice, who happens to be a 'doctor', unlike the photographers.
    See:
    http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/notestu.html
    They are being ignorant, irresponsible fools by not citing that picture. I'm going to see if I can find their email address, so that I can inform them of their great error. If I can't contact them, I'm letting Barry know.
    This has got me very angry, to say the least. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    This is unbelivable. Take both my links and click on them then make them right next to each other. IT is unbelivable at the simalarityies bacause they are the same palnts but do try that with them side by side.

    Even though they are obviously fakes, and they aren't dificult to do you must admit that the pictures do look kinda funy! I think we should have a little competition to see who can do the best 'fake'! Giants, Man eating, Mutants. I once did a photo on gardenweb forum where I was leaning up against the side of a Ceph Pitcher! It was pretty funky but I lost it and now I cant find it on the site. I might try to do it again. Come on people, give it a go! Post them in the 'general discussions' area!

    You know...

    if you haven't already written them ( or I might just do it myself )

    I went through that whole website the other day when I first saw the link.

    I laughed, I cried, I had a cup of coffee [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    They are having a contest on which criket will survive?!?
    !#&#36@%^#&#36&#36!*^&#36#@&#36!@&#36*^&#36**@&%(@

    I really don't feed my plants, b/c I have way too many...if they catch something, they catch something.

    I am going to start playing with different things on feeding these plants that isn't killing anything.

    PLUS ( yes there is more )

    They put a LIVE RAT IN A NEPENTHES!


    I am a big animal lover and that had me steamin...it shows the before ( live rat ) and then a couple of days later they emptied the pitcher and the remains were spread out. VERY SICK and INHUMANE

    This is a CP soceity on the west coast that is doing this! FRIGGIN CP LOVERS!

    THEN

    they took a bunch of goldfish and tossed them on a tray of D. adelae and took pics over the course of like 8 days or so. NASTY! And VERY CRUEL!

    These plants don't catch this kind of stuff in the wild...some of these plants catch NOTHING AT ALL!!

    Anyway...b4 I step down from this soapbox, I encourage people to write whomever you need to ( if you are as upset about this as I am ) and get these people some bad press.

    In the meantime, I encourage people to find other ways at feeding your plants ( if you even feel a need to feed them at all )

    I couldn't find their email anywhere on the page. I didn't know there was more to it--something about feeding fish to cp? That makes me even more PO'd, as I like fish almost as much as plants! Did you see their email address listed anywhere? If so, they'll be hearing from me.

    I already emailed Barry Meyers-Rice a few days ago.

    I encourage intelligent humans to feed their plants (if they feed their plants) INSECTS and other lower forms of life. Rats have been called intelligent creatures, and giving them a pointless death deserves you a place hopefully shared by poachers:

    I tend to agree with Barry's rant in the second or third paragraph.

    You must tell me their email address. I must have verbal revenge.
    I must sound rather crazed, but I really don't like these photo-stealing, animal-killing people.

    info@sdcps.com -general contact
    kahuna@sdcps.com -general contact

    ms1@san.rr.com -president and founder email address

    The site:
    http://www.theautoappraiser.com/sdcp...ers_frames.htm

    Here is the fish link as well as the rat:
    http://www.theautoappraiser.com/sdcp...ers_frames.htm

    bet on which criket will live:
    http://www.theautoappraiser.com/sdcp...ers_frames.htm

    I feel ill. I am working on my letter to this place. I encourage anyone, if you feel this is just wrong, contact them and let them know about it.
