Weekly Beast- Mycena Luxaeterna

Mycena Luxaeterna may not be an actual beast, but I had to share with all of you these glowing mushrooms that were discovered in Brazil.  These mushrooms are very small, and San Francisco State University's Dennis Desjardin put it perfectly, "when you look down at the ground, it's like looking up at the sky... Every little 'star' was a little mushroom..."

How amazing would that be to see glowing mushrooms in the rain forest?
