As we will talk about this mushroom as bleeding tooth mushroom. Bleeding tooth mushroom has a beige and fairly dull appearance when matured. The colour of the young bleeding tooth mushrooms is whitish and their pores produce a dirty blood-like liquid. Bleeding tooth mushrooms are grown in forests where coniferous trees are dense, in mountainous areas and near mosses. It is known that this mushroom grew in Europe, the Middle East, East Asia and North America. Bleeding Tooth Mushroom (Hydnellum peckii ) are not able to be eaten because of their extremely bitter taste. Colour pigments of bleeding tooth mushrooms are used for dyeing fabrics. This mushroom medically contains antibacterial components.

The forests where the bleeding tooth mushroom is dense are defined by scientists as rich and uncontaminated forests. The reason is that bleeding tooth mushrooms produce enzymes needed to help trees benefit more from amino acids and minerals in nature, and help the ecological balance. The reason why these fungi are rarely seen in Europe in recent days is the intense effect of air and environmental pollution on the European forests.
