Largest Living Organism Ever Discovered

Swiss scientists have discovered what they believe is Europe’s biggest fungus, stretching over 86 acres and believed to be over 1000 years old. Europe’s is dwarfed by a Honey Mushroom growing in the US’s Malheur National Forest in Oregon which covers 890 hectares (2,200 acres) – making it the largest living organism ever discovered.
