I know this freaks the fuck out of some people but I can’t not reblog it. I first saw this on a BBC nature special when I was only two or three and I was nothing but mesmerized by how adorable and cool it is for a mom frog to also be like a froggy wasp’s nest.
I was honestly rather disappointed when I discovered how many people instead developed a life-long terror of holes from learning that same thing.
Pipa frogs are magical > : (
Guess I should restart this place again.

Presenting Cyttaria darwinii
Darwin first collected this fungus in his voyage to Patagonia on the Beagle. He descibed the fruiting bodies as “the colour of the yolk of an egg”, with varying sizes “from that of a bullet to that of a small apple”. He compares the gelatinous interior to “vermicelli pudding”. Of course, Darwin was not its first discoverer; he remarked that the Araucarian Indians of the Tierra del Fuego ate the mushrooms, uncooked, often with fish. They are still harvested in Southern Chile.
