We went to an asian restaurant last night where there was a dish called, “Hairy Squash with Cordyceps”. So that was intriguing.
Yes. That’s a photo of a parasitic fungus that is growing on a very large dead arachnid. And at some point someone thought, “OMG. That looks delicious!”
Read about cordyceps and learn your weird factoid for the day. Totally bizarre. Love this weird world.
