Re: Fungi on Parade

Thanks for having a go Bart, pretty darn good.
I'll let others have a go before I'll let you know how you did.

Re: Fungi on Parade

Is this a trick question? Still working on 1, 4 & 6 but I do believe that:-

2 - Elephant haemorrhoid

3 - Elephants foot

5 - Dead cows hoof

7 - My mums attempt at bread making

8 - Ferret poo

9 - A conker

Am I warm? Have I won out?
