I was actually just reading a hypothesis as to why the traps don't get that large. Well not really a true hypothesis; more like conjecture. Anyway, it seems the mechanism that causes the traps to spring doesn't quite work as it should in the large cultivars like B52, Ginormous, and King Henry. The traps close slower or one side closes before another. That might be the reason traps never evolved large enough to eat a bird or small dog.

From what I've seen, in nature, the traps can be as long as 2". The biggest I've ever seen them from my collection has been ~1". The traps of some Asian pitcher plants can be big enough to trap small amphibians, reptiles, and rodents.
