4. Devil's finger mushroom, this mushroom really looks creepy and produces rancid smell. This is a very creepy mushroom

Lee Jia Jia's insight:

Chaga, the Mushroom of Immortality. The very first time I heard of this mushroom and the title of this article captured my attention as sentence of "the mushroom of immortality". From the picture, exactly like the article mention, it does not look like any other common mushroom and it just look like woods or charcoal. It is a very impressive mushroom as the benefits that brings to human and medical properties. However, it could only edible if we obtain it from the birch trees.
