    Anyone know what kind of mushroom this is?
    Kinda looks like a chicken mcnugget.
    On the exterior, it looks like a false morel, but doesn't really look like one on the inside.

    In a douglas fir forest in northern New Mexico, USA in the Sangre de Cristo mountains about 11,000 ft asl

    Don't know, but it'll probably taste the same, and may be equally toxic, so don't try eating it!

    Why are chicken nuggets toxic? Or is it just a generic "fast food is bad for health" advice?
