    There are many famous blue-bruising mushrooms. A common rule for boletes is that you shouldn't eat one that has a red pore surface and bruises blue. Because so many blue bruising boletes are poisonous, it's best to avoid them altogether... (copy/paste from google)

    Good thing i wasn't hungry, it was a very strong slime inside, and the one I found next to it was bigger than my head, the stem looked like it was 100 years old, was very beautiful
