Fly Agaric, I think it's called. Classed as poisonous, and can cause hallucinations.

If you pick it, chop it, and leave it in a bowl of water overnight, you'll find most of the flies in your house will be drowned in the bowl in the morning.

my cats make short work of DLL's...yuk, I am not their biggest fan...spiders are the worst though but luckily the cats love the taste of them too.

I don't think they're particularly rare, but you don't see them that often.

They are pretty amazing to look at, though! I've seen them with 'scrape' marks across the top: apparently, squirrels sometimes have a go on them. Crazy squirrels.

Edit: just found this:

Raging, bloated, war squirrels? I don't like the sound of that at all...

I had something similar in a cup of tea once. Me and my mates were watching The Never Ending Story. That bloody flying dog kept staring at me, and jumping out of the TV. :eek:
