Pigskin Puffball (Halved)

Photo of pigskin puffball cut in half, showing dark flesh inside

When very young, the inside of the pigskin puffball is nearly white, but soon becomes marbled, then purplish, then blackish with age. At more than 3 inches in diameter, this specimen is about as big as they get.
