Coral fungi are mushrooms that are usually shaped like coral from the ocean but can also be shaped like forks, worms or clubs. They are rubbery and sometimes are brightly coloured.

Habitat[change | change source]

Most coral fungi grow on the ground, but some grow on logs and stumps. They are usually found in forests but some can also be found in fields.

Although they are not poisonous, some kinds are a laxative and some can cause stomach upset.
