Another of my favorite mushrooms for Mayshroom - Hydnellum peckii - the bleeding tooth fungus, or strawberry and cream fungus! Such a cool mushroom. The "blood" is only on the young ones, and is actually guttation!

    May I ask; What is it that makes you so "addicted" to mushrooms?

      I honestly have no simple answer for this- they're fascinating to me, and I just... fell in love one year! Everything about them amazes me, and I love to find and identify them. If they're edible it's a plus, but not a necessity! :D It's like a weird.... deep connection haha

        It may is weird, yes, but that's why we are here, right? XP
        Can comprehend your fascination, they're indeed really interesting. Kinda sticking out from natures creations, not really a plant, not really an animal, tasty, mind-expanding and especially cooperative with their surroundings.

          Yup! exactly! Some mushrooms even hunt nematodes, which is really amazing!

            Had to read about it, but damn, son, this really is great!
