2017 Largest Dionaea Trap Competition.

The biggest trap competition has returned!

1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes to be announced. Prize donations welcomed. Please PM if you're able to help.

The competition is open to anyone worldwide but the prizes can only be sent within Europe.

 

Please read the rules carefully before posting.

The rules are:

The trap must be photographed parallel to the camera, with a clear plastic ruler (in millimetres) in front of the trap, the trap is to be measured across the side just below the teeth, the teeth are NOT included in the measurement. As pictured:

This picture must then be PM'ed to me, (link in my profile) or emailed.  A second picture must be taken without the ruler and sent to me the same way. If you prefer to email your photograph, please PM me for the email address. I will post all the measured pictures on the thread on the closing date so we can see who the winner is. Pictures must be taken this year. You can enter as many times as you like. Competition ends September 30th.

May the biggest trap win!

This is great.  One question.  Should the trap be open or closed? I've always wondered that in previous competitions.

I don't think it matters as long as it's measured flat against the front of the trap.

A flat closed trap measures slightly longer than an open one ;)
