Mushrooms? #775703

Asked October 18, 2021, 1:00 PM EDT

Hi! We have some sort of mushroom/fungus that grows in our backyard under the grass. Our dog digs them out of the ground and eats them if we can't catch him. Do you have any idea what that might be? It's a white color and they just smell like a white mushroom you'd get from the grocery store.

Expert Response

Would it be possible for you to attach a few photos to this question? That would really help her experts respond. With that said, we are not allowed to identify mushrooms. Mostly because it could be extremely dangerous if we were to get it wrong. A photo or two would help us decide if we are able to respond

That's very understandable. Unfortunately I don't have a photo of it. The one time I was home when we got one away from him it was all crumpled up so it didn't even have a definite shape anymore. I'll see if I can get a photo of one!

okay -- once you have a photo or two, please send them along.  You're right to keep your animals away from them.
