Hydnellum peckii has many common names including strawberries and cream, bleeding tooth fungus, and Devil’s tooth. When young, H. peckii has a pale velvety top and appears to bleed from its pores. The “blood” has yet to be identified, however scientists found that extracts from the fungus contain the chemical compound atromentin, which has anti-bacterial and anti-coagulant properties. H. peckii can be found in Europe and North America’s Pacific Northwest and despite its appearance, it’s nontoxic but inedible. Hydnellum pekii is a mycorrhizal fungus meaning it has a mutually beneficial relationship with the roots of certain trees. The fungus receives fixed carbon from the host tree in exchange for the fungus facilitating the tree’s absorption of minerals.
Real or fake?
The Slenderman Sighting 2017
Uploaded to Youtube by:
“Slender Man first surfaced on an internet forum in 2009. He was described as a very tall and thin humanoid that had a featureless face and wore a black suit. Stories of this creepy figure quickly began to spread who would often stalk and abduct his victims, usually children.
Sightings of the Slender Man began to occur more and more frequently and soon many were debating whether or not this mysterious creature was actually real. In 2017, GamersRevengeUK uploaded this unsettling footage to YouTube. In the video, he explains that he is testing out some new equipment for his bike and wants to time how fast it takes him to race to the end of the road and back.
As he cycles out of shot, a tall, dark figure can be seen emerging from behind a tree in the nearby field.
The uploader claims that while he was shooting the video, a car stopped and a very shaken up woman warned him that there was a tall, faceless figure in the field but he didn’t see anything unusual until he watched the footage some time later.
If you zoom in on the figure, you can clearly see it resembles Slender Man. It’s tall, has stooped shoulders and very long arms and legs. It even appears to be wearing a black suit.
