A new species of fungus has been discovered in the Siberian tundra.

Nature Expert, Dr. Unc,: Yes, it is a very interesting fungus actually. Violent, very violent. The fungus is small, like a pea, but very deadly. It can blow up it’s size ten times and then it looks like a giant to the poor ants that the fungus mostly prey on. It rolls the ants over and over until they are crushed. Then the fungus feed and goes back to a tiny little pea again, waiting for next prey. When there is no more ants left the fungus explodes and spreads its spores to the wind. This little killer fungus is called, putinus murderus.
