An interesting fugus seen during a 90-minute nature trek in the park along a jungle path known as Jalan Telok Paku. From Wikipedia, I found the following...
"Phallus indusiatus, commonly called in English the bamboo fungus, bamboo pith, long net stinkhorn, crinoline stinkhorn or veiled lady, is a stinkhorn fungus in the Phallaceae family. It has a cosmopolitan distribution in tropical areas, and has been collected in Asia, the Americas, and Africa...It is an edible mushroom used as an ingredient in Chinese haute cuisine; the mushroom is grown commercially and commonly sold in Asian markets. Nutritional analysis has shown that the mushroom is rich in protein, carbohydrates and dietary fiber. The mushroom also contains various bioactive compounds, and has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties."

Truly a broad based observation including knowledge from several disciplines. It sets a standard for how to enrich any travel experience with a little study before and after
