Hi, I stumbled upon these today here in Sweden. Didn't take any home, just took some pics. I was wondering, looks like some animal have been eating of some of them. Is that bad? Should I leave those that have bite marks alone? I'm afraid I might get rabies or something.,,. Thanks in advance!

I would personally be fine with taking those, maybe just cutting away the eaten spots. If you're going to boil them, it should be fine. I just read that boiling will deactivate rabies virus. It would still be good to research it on your own if it's something you're concerned about. Happy animals communing with god and nature spirits, loving life flow. Maybe you can commune with spirit of the animal who shared the fungi with you. It is kind of beautiful to share medicine with the rest of nature. <3
