'Tis The Season: Fungal Christmas Trees And Snowman

December 19, 2012


FULL DISCLOSURE: I'm visiting my family in Alabama for the first time in two and half years so if posting gets sporadic the next couple days it's because I'm catching up with my parents, hanging out with my brother, playing with my nieces, or explaining to my little sister why she can't date until she's 30. IT'S OUT OF THE QUESTION, BECKY.

This is a small series of holiday themed art created using different species of fungi by scientists at the J. Craig Venter Institute. I would lick any one of them for all the money you have in your pocket. "I don't have any money in my pocket." You drive a hard bargain, but I'll do it.

Hit the jump for Frosty and another tree.



Thanks to Terrence, who likes his Christmases white but not furry.
