How often have you encountered new, unknown things that have blown your wits so much that you wanted to get on your bed and wrap yourself in a blanket, never to leave again? Well, here is something you probably never knew of, and now once you see it, you're never going to want to get out of your house in the fear of one of these! Check it out!
These mushrooms are found North America and Europe, and particularly in Iran and Korea!
The Puffball Mushroom belongs to the Basidiomycota subdivision of fungi. Just look at the size of that thing!
Puffball Mushrooms don't have a head in which it bears spores. Instead, the spores grow inside itself, and the body splits open when it is to release the spores!
Other names of this exotic kind of mushroom are Bearded Tooth Mushroom, Hedgehog Mushroom, Satyr's Beard, Bearded Hedgehog Mushroom, pom pom mushroom, and Bearded Tooth Fungus.
Lion's Mane Mushroom can be found growing and hanging on hardwood trees as a parasitic fungus. Despite its strange looks, it is edible!
This pretty looking mushroom grows in the evergreen forests of eastern North America, East Asia and Central Asia.
The younger Bleeding Tooth specimen gave the mushroom its name, because it "bleeds" a bright red juice that has anticoagulant properties. They aren't poisonous, but have an extremely bitter taste which makes them unappetizing.
