The diversity of life on the planet is quite startling really; we often think of plants and animals, but there are also the Fungi...
Fungus comprise some of the smallest and largest known living creatures and if we did have visitors from another world, I doubt they would be quite as odd as some of the fungi we have already.
Fungus can grow on both dead and living; animal, plant and even humans can play host.
I hope that the next time I get a dose of athlete's foot, it does not look this bad!
