Several of these growing on an upright, dead tree trunk. A large piece was knocked off - can see in next photos. The one in the first picture was about 8 or 9 inches across.
Wooded area in part of Post Oak Savannah - east of Austin, TX.
This was just off of the main trail in the woods on our own property. I've never seen one like this before. I posted it to my facebook page and people suggested it was Coral Tooth (Hericium coralloides)
