A Bracket Fungus

Most of us are familiar with bracket fungus, whether we know it or not. Bracket fungus, or shelf fungus, is the typically small fungus that grows on the sides of tree trunks or logs. They look like little shelves.

There are a couple of large bracket fungi growing from an oak tree on the Dinosaur Trail. The tree is between the Styracosaurus and the Fossil Dig.

While you’re digging for shark’s teeth, take a break and have a peek at the fungus.
