Caption: Bear's Head Tooth fungus. View of the bracket fungus Hericium coralloides (Hydnaceae), known as the Bear's Head tooth. It was previously named Hydnum coralloides. The white spore-bearing bodies seen here spread horizontally, and have hanging pointed spines. Its flesh is soft but becomes tough with age, and smells and tastes sour. This fungus grows on dead trunks of beech wood. It is relatively rare. Photographed in Ashland County, Ohio, USA.
