This is one beast of a morel.
This ginormous fungi was found last year by Kenny Nordmeyer of Saline County, Missouri.
It is a true morel mushroom because it is hollow inside.

That is indeed a monster morel, confirmed by the Missouri Department of Conservation in this post on Facebook.
Spring is here and that means prime mushroom hunting time.
