Bizarre 'face-hugging' fungus found

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

IT looks like a deadly alien from a terrifying sci-fi movie.

But this bizarre-looking species is actually a harmless mushroom that has been found growing wild in the New Forest National Park.

Ecologist Dan Hoare, who works for the charity Butterfly Conservation, was on a visit to the Forest when he came across the fungus.

Minutes after his arrival foul-smelling tentacles burst from an egg-like sack and reached out into the air.

It actually doesnt look much like a face hugger at all. It looks more like the giant gods off of the first hellboy movie.

I have had two other Stinkhorn Fungi species come up in my yard one orange and the other more typical of a mushroom, white with a dark cap. They really do smell nasty, almost nauseating. And the second one was in the genus Phallus so you can guess what it looked like.
