Topiaries are living sculptures, plants trained and trimmed to look like animals and other shapes. Literary references to topiary sculptures date back to the first century A.D., and they have been a garden feature in outdoor spaces all over the world. Ancient Romans used cypress trees to create topiaries, but gardeners who want to add living sculptures to their own yards have other plant options.

Image: Orimath This mushroom - thought to be a specimen of Clathrus archeri, or "Devil's Fingers" - takes the cake for being the strangest and creepiest specimen of a fungus looking like something else. It looks like a cold, dead hand reaching out to pull the rest of the zombie body out of the earth. Those even look like tattered sleeves down by the wrists of the hands!

The name, Faucaria tigrina, is derived from the Latin word fauces meaning animal mouth and tigrina meaning tiger. No wonder it's nicknamed "Tigers Jaws"
