White Bread or White Punk

Just about every time I go for a walk in the bush there is something interesting or usual to see. On Sunday at Dereel I came across what looked like a chunk of bread, it turns out to be the last stage of the fungi, white punk. Laetiporus portentosus White Punk grows on eucalypts. The photos healthy white punk were taken at Teesdale. Wallabies often eat fungi but I am not sure if they eat this one.
