If you think mushrooms are boring, you’d better take a look at the latest footage of luminous fungi from “Planet Earth II.”
Ever since we saw the clip of snakes hunting as a group, we’ve been counting down the days until the premiere of this incredible show here in the States. The series will hit American TV on January 28, 2017, but until then, we have this sneak peek from the latest episode, “Jungle.”
As you’ll see, glowing fungi has stumped scientists for years. Was it simply a bizarre natural quirk or did it serve a larger purpose? Finally, they think they’ve found the solution.
Watch as the jungle floor comes to life with glowing fungi. The phenomenon certainly is beautiful, but it also has an important role to play in the circle of life.
