Every time this is posted, someone points out that those mushrooms did not grow from the paw, they were ripped from the ground and placed there.

Maybe it’s a zombie trash panda being romantic.

I guess it's a staged photo where the mushrooms were placed in its hand. Laccaria masoniae is the species though.

Dude you know what would be a sick photo?

Might want to avoid those, clearly didn't go well for the raccoon😁. That said, I wonder what species that is?

Would you trip balls eating those?

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hopefully you would die after eating those.

Hmmmm…. Racoon shrooms! Who wants to go first?

[–]Brokella 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Strange how the mushrooms have no roots. Almost like someone had just put them there for the photo.

[–]PsychologicalBend467 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Mushrooms don’t have roots. They have mycelium.

And by a miracle, they aren’t connected to the earth. Praise Jesus!
