Puff ball.

so I found this puff ball on someone?s lawn today.

Its still fleshy and is not rotting :laugh:

Is it worthwhile or should I let the cats play with it?

The fear of loss is always greater than the desire for gain

To find out, you need to cut it in half. If the inside is solid, white, and there is not a cap and stem (on other words, it's not an Amanita button) then it's probably OK. It should be more than 4 inches wide, and it should have been found on the ground (not wood) and not in a cluster.

If all that's true, then slice it up, bread it, and fry it. It looks like a Giant Puffball (Langermannia gigantea), although your photo is out of focus and I can't tell how big it is.

Nice find.

Happy mushrooming!
