    A huge mushroom was recently spotted at the Pu’er Lesser Panda Manor Villa Resort Hotel in Pu’er city, in southwestern China’s Yunnan province, China News reported on August 5.

    The mushroom, weighing 8 kilograms with a perimeter of 1.8 meters, is the largest and heaviest of its kind ever found in the region, though it cannot be eaten because it is toxic. The manor in the transitional area between tropical and subtropical climate allegedly provides good environment for fungi to grow.

    At present, it has been transplanted to a secluded forest to prevent tourists from accidentally eating it.
