Different from the normal bear trap, the Larger Bear Trap is usually used for larger animals appearing in ARK Survival Evolved. More importantly, this larger trap can’t be collected easily by other ones. However, you can’t destroy it after waiting for 10 seconds. Other players can totally destroy those traps instantly once placing without any PVE timer.
A raptor or a bronto can trigger this trap. We have no clue that whether a raptor is targeted to be trapped or not, because we can catch it easily even if we use a diminutive trap too. Furthermore, the Raptor can get ten damage due to the trap. If a bronto caught by the trap, a PVE timer can be started even though it has no effect, and it can be called a bug as the trap can still be destroyed. Time is just similar to a diminutive trap, and it can take around 800 seconds.
The alpha creatures won’t be triggered by the bear traps at present (examined on Alpha Rex)
We are not sure about whether wild creatures could take destruction from the traps or not.
All these examinations are performed on PVE server; a description probably won’t truly demonstrate on PVP servers in which the traps can take the damage possibly.
