Fungus that covers the entire 35 acres of the Swiss National Park (Swiss National Park) near the town of Ofenpass (Ofenpass), more than one thousand years.
It was found that the fungus monster — it's a honey agaric (Armillaria ostoyae), however, 800 meters long and 500 meters wide.
Most of it is hidden under the earth, and it consists of a vast network of sometimes very thick filaments.
