Will the ‘wolf’s fart’ make a good Spanish tortilla?

A MASSIVE mushroom weighing more than six kilos has been found in Spain.

Two men discovered the enormous fungi, alongside another weighing two kilos, while working in a field in Asturias.

The edible mushroom – known locally as wolf’s fart – belongs to the Lycoperdon Perlatum variety.

But its fate is undecided with finders Salvador and Ramon wanting to put it on show while the local bars are vying for a piece to serve as tapas.

“My first thought was what an amazing tortilla I am going to make!” said one resident.
