Bizarre blooming fungus timelapse is oddly satisfying and kind of gross
This is the bizarre blooming fungus known as a red cage stinkhorn exploding from its egg on June 1, 2016 in Dorset, England in this oddly satisfying and strange footage.
The species is native to Australia and New Zealand but has been introduced to the UK.
"Like something from a sci-fi movie this fungus dramatically erupts from its egg forming a large red cage filled with a brown slime containing their spores and relies on flies for its distribution. The rotten flesh smell of the slime attracts flies who get coated in the spore containing slime and carry it away to germinate into a new crop of fungi," said the filmer.
