It looks like a dessert (for me marshmallow with drops of Raspberry)  but no… and don’t EAT IT!! 🙂 ….this is the natural manifestation of a fungus called Hydnellum Peckii that bleeds this sap, a bright red juice that contains a pigment with anticoagulant properties similar to heparin. (anticoagulant= doesn’t allow to make a clot if you are bleeding)

Parece uma sobremesa não é? mas nada disso! 🙂 é um fungo originário da Europa e Estados Unidos mas foi encontrado em 2008 em Irã e em 2010 na Korea…ele é chamado de fungo Dente Sangrando…e solta esta seiva quando jovem. Parece que esta sangrando…e te conto mais: o pigmento que faz ele sangrar vermelho tem o poder de NÃO deixar COAGULAR! mas uma razão para você somente ficar olhando rs!!
