A man visiting his parents lived quite a surprise last Sunday. A fungus of 13 books grew in the yard of his mother, Saint-Pascal, in eastern ontario.
“I had never seen it, there was a small mushroom, about 6 pounds, but it is my brother-in-law who told me to watch the other fungus, which was really huge,” says Louis Séguin, a resident of British Columbia.
The largest known organism in the world is in fact a fungus. The Armillary honey color living in Oregon, in the United States, occupies nearly 2 400 acres on the ground, an area as large as 1 665 football pitches.
