YAAAASSSSSSSSS. Nom nom nom nom nom nom. Pan. Butter. Nom nom nom.

This fungus does not grow under the sea, but it sure looks like it!
It's not quite a Mountain Lion, which I'm glad about, especially when I'm hiking around in the woods.
This plant flowers on tall tubular spikes, and loves wet locations. Hang ten, dude!
