A giant mushroom weighing 200kg has attracted a flock of curious onlookers to the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak over the past few days.

Dao Duc Dai, owner of the 60cm-tall mushroom, said his mother bought it from a local farmer for 200 million VND (9,436 USD) and had to hire eight men to carry it home.

Now, his family is contacting experts to find out more about the origin and value of the mushroom.

In the future, they may register the mushroom for the Guinness Book of Records.-VNA
