Notes: This is a deadly, toothed parasite of hardwoods. This specimen, growing on a doomed elm, was estimated to be at least 50 pounds in weight. Not believed to be edible, alas, so feast your eyes instead.

Nice! Known around here as the “Northern Tooth”. Usually it’s found high enough in the tree that it might go unnoticed. I have seen them close to the ground before. Tough old things, even when they are fresh.
