From Canada: Huge Mushroom :)
NOTE: You know how lots of people look like their pet dog? This guy looks a little like his mushroom. Haha.
Whilst out walking on a sunny day recently, Christian Therrien decided to do a spot of mushroom picking, near Fernie, British Columbia.
“Normally when I am here I find mushrooms. I have found a lot of five and ten pound mushrooms, but when I came upon this one I was shocked. There was lots of laughing and screaming,” says Therrien. No wonder, for what he had found was a giant mushroom, weighing in at an impressive 57.4 pounds!
Therrien can recall the last bug mushroom find in the area some years ago, but that only weight around 25 pounds.
“This is the first time I have ever seen one this big, it is absolutely amazing,” he says.
After taking pictures and showing off the find he said he would return it to where it was found in order to let the spores spread, but he also wants to look into whether or not the mushroom is a record breaker.
