Bio-luminescent Fungi

Recently I did a post on LED mushroom lights that I thought were pretty cool. My youngest sib saw this post and then did a post on actual bioluminescent fungi. No doubt  the artist from the LED post got his inspiration from the real thing.

These fungi are normal and fungi-like in the daylight and glow in the dark. Well, they glow all the time, you just see it better in the dark. There are about 70 different species of glow 'shrooms and all of them live somewhere other than where I live. Warm, humid places where they have no snow mostly. For more information and a list of bioluminescent fungi check out this wiki article.











Many thanks, Baaramtoi!
