Hello everyone! Today we will be focusing on the Tentacled Stinkhorn fungus. This particular specimen was found at Orokonui ecosanctuary under a rock. They attract flies by letting off the smell of poo. We also found the "egg" of the fungus. The Fungus is the colour of steak and in the middle is a brown circle. This was my first time ever finding one in nature. The fungus can be found in New Zealand. On the way down we also found the pink slime mould, Golden club fungus, and the red coral fungus. It was very fun going on the walk because we saw fungus, Kaka, Takahe, lots of spiders and spider webs, skinks, and geckos.
We did not go on the 20th of May 2017 because it was snowing :)
