Creature 9: Hydnellum peckii

A weird looking fungus
Today's creature is just a simple weird looking fungus Hydnellum peckii.

Commonly called Bleeding tooth fungus, and many other names I have never if you check out wikipedia's entry. Striking as it may be while its fruiting body is growing, it becomes a plain brown color when it is mature.

Hydnellum peckii is common in North America and Europe.
