An animation demonstrating how “faerie circles” are formed.
A faerie circle is a ring of mushrooms that forms completely naturally. It begins with a mushroom whose roots grow evenly in all directions. Over time, the central mushrooms die and the next ones grow in a slightly larger radius. This will repeat as long as the roots are intact. A large ring of this size may take decades or even a century to form.
It is believed that, if one steps inside the circle, they will be transported to the faerie realm and captured by faeries who seek revenge on humans.
