Critter of the Week: The Devil’s fingers fungus

From the collecton Critter of the Week

This week’s critter is a species of stinkhorn fungi that looks (and smells) like the beginning of a zombie apocalypse. 

The Devil’s fingers fungus (Clathrus archeri) sprouts red tentacles out of the ground that smell like rotting meat.
