Usually considered vegetables, mushrooms are neither plants nor animals. They belong to a unique kingdom of fungi.
Unlike plants that make food using sunlight and animals that eat their food; fungi have a unique way of obtaining nutrition.
They have certain thread-like structures called mycelia; singular mycelium that grow into or around the food source and release digestive enzymes to break down food externally that is then absorbed by mycelia.
