The forest demonshroom split from its ancestor the supershroom and in fact replaced it on the surface of the Huggs Rainforest and Huggs Temperate Forest. Its ancestor still shares these biomes with it but was pushed back into the underground niche. Due to major feeding pressures from the newly evolved population of the masked-bandit hoofplent the supershroom on the surface had to evolve a new strategy for survival. It therefore evolved many spikes on the cap of the shroom. Also both the cap and the stem are covered with a weak nerve-damaging poison that makes the fauna that touches it feel small uncomfortable tangles immediately near the place they were exposed on. If the poison enters the blood system, which happens in cases of massive feeding of the spiky demonshrooms, the fauna can easily pass out or even become paralyzed. Still in order to keep its lifecycle and prevent desperate eating from its main predator their once smaller version shrooms that grow from beneath the cap evolved into fleshy fruits contain tones of spores inside that and are eatable. These spores will end up eventually in the dung of the feeding fauna growing into a new shroom using the natural resources in the dung. Its unique coloration is used to attract and warn the fauna. As green is less natural to the purple forest this color warns the fauna from the dangerous poison while the fruit itself is colored brown-red like many other eatable fruits in the area.
