I've actually seen pictures of these little things before, but always thought they were 'shopped. I'm miffed though, they were actually real. I wonder if these things will kill someone if they ate it. You know what, I think these little things are also in MGS 3 too. Mmmmm tasty.

During Japan's rainy season, a glow-in-the-dark mushroom begins to sprout in Wakayama prefecture. The Mycena lux-coeli mushrooms sprout from fallen chinquapin trees and as they grow, a chemical reaction involving a light-emitting pigment occurs, causing them to glow a ghostly green. The caps can grow to as large as 2 cm (about 1 inch) in diameter, but because the mushrooms are prone to dehydration, they only have a few days to live once the rain stops. Just goes to show you that the curiosities of the world never cease!
