Hydnellum peckii is a type of fungus known for its tooth-like projections that “bleed” a bright red liquid that has anticoagulant properties. Its strange appearance has earned it several descriptive nicknames, including bleeding tooth fungus, strawberries and cream and Devil’s tooth. The fungus is found in North America, Europe and Korea.

    If I saw this, I would legitimately think it was fruit or some kind of boba pearl and just eat it anyway.
