SpongeBob SquarePants' Fungus
Scientific Name: Spongiforma squarepantsii
New to science in 2011, Spongiforma squarepantsii is a species of fungus that produces sponge-like, rubbery orange fruit bodies that resume their original shape if water is squeezed out...just like the loveable cartoon. —Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
