Beatrix Potter

While famous for her children’s books, Beatrix Potter was also an accomplished naturalist and painted many plants, animals and fungi. Turns out, one of the latter was the fly agaric! Here are some of her depictions of my favorite mushroom:

Mushroom Men

The Mushroom Men video games feature a tribe of Amanita warriors:

  • Amanita¬†– An evil mushroom tribe who started the mushroom wars in the first game “Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi” for the DS platform. They are master fighters, and always attack in groups. Their weapon of choice tends to be scavenged spears. Their leader, the Amanita General managed to grow to a massive size. Whether this is natural or caused by involvement with the meteors is unknown.
