I was having today some mushrooms for lunch and I found myself contemplating about that could be mushrooms considered as some kind of animals, since they are as delicious as meat and some of them are as poisonous as the most poisonous creatures amongst the animals. Of course, scientifically observed, mushrooms are closer to plants than to animals, there's no doubt about that, but, for some reason I like the idea that they might be some kind of plant-animals :) Regarding that, we have here the photos of some ot the most weird mushrooms ever seen. By the way, we will give you a little hind about the mushrooms: The weirder it looks the greater the chance that it is poisonous.
