Creepy Bleeding Tooth Fungus

Video

It is a hynoid  species, producing spores on the surface of vertical spines or tooth-like projections that hang from the under surface of the fruit bodies.

The fruit bodies typically have a funnel-shaped cap with a white edge, although the shape can be highly variable.The bleeding tooth fungus looks kind of like a wad of chewing gum that leaks blood.They’re also called the strawberries and cream, the red-juice tooth, and the devil’s tooth. Whoever is in charge of naming scary bullshit seems really insistent that this thing looks like a tooth, while mostly skirting over the fact that it freaking sweats blood.

They are listed as inedible which implies that someone attempted to eat one at some point.
