Watch this unusual fungus

Fungi, in their immense range of shapes and colors, do not all have the same classic umbrella shape.

In fact, some fungi may take on contours and colors that are very special and peculiar, such as in the case of the species Clathrus archeri, also known as "Devil's finger". 

As it comes out of the ground, this fungus opens its "tentacles" from which its strange nickname is derived.

Here is a video time-lapse of yet, another amazing natural wonder of the world.
