What is the world's largest organism?
If you have to find yourself in the Malheur National
Forest in eastern Oregon make sure you drop by and visit the world's largest
fungus, which happens to be the world's largest living organism as well.
The fungus is an Armillaria ostoyae or honey mushroom
as it is more commonly known and it covers 10 square kilometers or about 1,600
The fungus was discovered in 2000 when scientists
were trying to figure out what was killing trees in the area and discovered the
fungal culprit growing three feet below ground.
The fungus is estimated to be up to 8,500 years old.
