What is This...Monstrous Thing?

Is it H.P. Lovecraft’s monstrous creation Cthulhu or the tentacled Sarlacc from “Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back”?

Neither — it’s just a type of fungus called the Octopus Stinkhorn (Clathrus archeri) or the Devil’s Fingers … or so they say.

You decide.
