What if Smurfs were real?
The Smurf is actually the result of a symbiotic relationshipbetween two organisms. We believe that Smurfs put their 'embryos' inthe button of a developing mushroom. From a distance, Smurfs seemlike they are wearing a hat and pants but as you can see this is afallacy. The fungus provides camouflage and protective epidermallayers for the creature, while the creature provides nutrients andmobility for the spreading of spores.
Smurfs are believed to be a hunter gatherer society. As youcan see, this little guy is returning from a successful venture. Itis generally difficult to spot a Smurf; they are very apprehensiveand cunning. Sadly though, it is rumored that they are hunted fortheir medicinal properties. It's hard to determine but it is thoughtthat there are not many colonies of Smurf left.
