I think you are very clever for 10yrs old , you were being very helpful in trying to find out what my Fungus was called :o)

I was lucky to see one of these many moons ago, they're huge aren't they? I think if I was a predator those great big 'eyes' would scare me off too! Great photo Amy:-)

Thanks Bornagain , If I had been on my own I don't think that I could have picked it up like my hubby did , I hadn't seen one before it would have scared me ..... !!

My sister just found one of these monsters in our garden this morning and nearly died. I could not wait to get on the net to find out what this guy was. He is huge and whats more my GSD puppy nearly ate him. Do they bite? LOL!!
