    I think Cynic81 must have been mistaken about the 3" traps..
    If there was a 3" VFT trap somewhere, we would all know about it! (take out a ruler right now and look at 3"&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    based on the actual physical eveidence in this thread, the largest *verified* trap is 1.75".

    anything over 2" must be exceedingly rare, and IMO 3" is impossible..
    (actually, I think 2" might even be impossible! I have never seen one more than 2"..has anyone? actually seen a *measured* trap more than 2"? not just looking and guessing..)

    A man at the BACPS brought in a 35 year old sawtooth with traps reaching over 2 inches it was so cool!!! I thought it was a giant when I first saw it
    Edit: Measured? hmmm.... I'm not sure but it was huge and had to be at least 2 inches ask Spec he saw it too.

    FTG, don't even complain. I got to see huge VFTs, you got to bring home huge minors. I think you got the better end of the deal there [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] And I went on about july 5th.

    Now that I look at a ruler, I think I may have exaggerated a little, liker a fisherman who said he caight one "this big" (spreads arms). But they were still pretty huge!

    I'm bringing my monster 'Red Rosette Giant x Burgundy Trap Giant Upright' to the August NECPS meeting Saturday the 16th. Hopefully Nathan or someone else will have a digital camera....

    I have had a few traps around about 2"...and the ones on the that one in the pic are close if not there. I really haven't measured it. But I have to ogle it every time I walk by because the traps are so big and YAWNING.

    Hmmm...leaf cuttings....good idea Schloaty. lol No way to know that the cuttings would produce big traps. But would be fun to find out. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
