I think that's the dog's penis mushroom (don't know the real name)
Ah yes - Genus Phallus :)...and no, I'm not making it up!!!!
Yes you are. No WAY is that called a dog's penis mushroom.
OMG. I take it back. "The stinkhorn fungus (Phallus inpudicus) is a saprophyte that grows up out of the forest floor. This species is also sometimes known as the dog's-penis or devil's-penis, because of the anatomically-correct shape of the mushroom, and in the case of the latter name, it's terrible smell."
Yes, Mutinus caninus is what you have there, I think. It is definitely one of the stinkhorns. How fortunate you are! ;-) Nice video, and you have a pleasant voice. http://americanmushrooms.com/stinkhorns.htm
What a neat video!And, yanno, the name fits! ROFL!(I, too, thought that frog was joking at first. My apologies to you, frog).
