An Indiana teenager in Indiana found himself one hefty mushroom trophy. Fungi kudos to 13-year-old Kayden Graber, who found a morel mushroom that stands nearly 1-foot tall! In a Facebook post, the Indiana DNR shared photos of the mushroom that Kayden found near Linton, Indiana, in Greene County.
Every year, thousands of morels are found throughout the U.S., ranging in all different shapes and sizes – just like the trophy bucks we see during the fall. This is one of the first monstrous morels we’ve seen this year, and it certainly is a trophy.
