That's true Aaron! In fact, when I found it, it get upset, and then a could see this amazing feature, and I freak out, because that was the first time that I be in touched with this specie and that big, and I didn't know that this specie do that when someone or something bothers her.. But yeah, that's a great fact! Thank's!
Thank's Mark! haha and yeah it's a curious common name cause the "Rat". Maybe is for the natural feeding that this specie has of eating rats.. As we called here in CR: "Ratoneras".. particularly it doesn't sound very good to me, but what can I do.. But it is better the name that it has here in CR.. "Mica" or "Serpiente Tigre" (Tiger Snake) It sounds cooler!
Emm doesn't match with the specie or the first and second picture? Because if your saying that the specie A. pantherina doesn't match with the pics.. I'm not really sure neither... But the 3 pics are the same kind of fungus!
Hi Panther Cap! This 2 suggestions are great! The A.crenulata doesn´t look like the ones of the picture but A. pantherina is very similar!! I'm not really sure is that is the specie but I'm gonna take it for now! Thank you!!
