Simone E. Simmentaler Fleckvieh
Simmentaler Fleckvieh commented on by Simone E. Leogang, Salzburg, Austria8 years ago

That's a specie of Simmentaler Fleckvieh from Switzerland, but they don't seem to have a scientific name and every region developed his own new breedings in Bavaria and Austria.

Simone E. Common Puffball
Common Puffball commented on by Simone E. Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA8 years ago

I have to correct myself after checking again, as this is not the common, but the spiny puffball. They both have kind of spikes, but spiny has much bigger spikes. This is the common: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/133... and this is the spiny: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/123...

Simone E. Spiny Puffball
Spiny Puffball commented on by Simone E. Colorado, USA8 years ago

I think this is a mature Spiny Puffball. The spines slough off in age, revealing a somewhat net-like or reticulated surface. In young they are white, but as the puffball ages, it turns brown and the flesh turn powdery. Matures develop a hole at the top through which spores are released.

This is a Phlox, but it's hard to categorize the specie, as there are more than 60 different within this genus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phlox

I think this is the spiny puffball. The youngsters are white and later turn into brown.

I think this is the 'True Lover's Knot'. Isn't that a nice name for a plant ;-)

Did you take these photos in the 'Two Oceans Aquarium' in Cape Town? I worked half a year in CT, as I did an internship abroad during my studies and one of my most favorite leisure activites was spending hours in this Aquarium :-)
