    My gosh, Lynn it looks like a dinosaur egg. If I ever found a mushroom that big I would approach it with caution!!

  • Love your comments, John!! At least it was light!!! Thank you!

    these are AWESOME! I only first started finding these when I moved back to Kansas a few years back…and the first time I was in shock. Now when I find them…I think YUMMMMMY! This year…didn’t get to see one. Lucky you!

  • They are amazing, Carla…certainly easy to spot when they are this large!!! Thanks so much for your comment!!!
