Residents of Puxiong Township in China's Yunnan province had good reason to fetch their cameras following the discovery of a giant fungus. The large clump of mushrooms, which numbered over 100 caps attached at the base of their stems, caused quite a stir amongst locals. "I guess this mushroom can be entered into the Guinness World Records," said one woman as she photographed the ball of grey capped mushrooms. The fungus, which weighed more than 33lb (15kg) and measured 36in (93cm) in diameter, was proudly put on display by the man who found it. However, it is not known what type of fungus it is, nor whether it is safe to eat.
