This Week's Edition of WHAT IS IT?
A blogger in Indonesia recently found the amazing "thing" shown above growing in his garden. He suspects it may be a mushroom of some sort, but he's been unable to identify it. So, in the meantime, he's named it the "Zombie Hand." (Love it!)
According to his post, the organism emits a foul odor, "like dead fish or dead rat." He also says he's met other people who have more colorful versions of the same mushroom growing in their gardens.
So what is it? Whoever can correctly identify this remarkable organism will win our eternal admiration!
