Default Wild mushrooms

Anyone know the identification of this mushroom? That's a size 12 foot next to it.

Bob said that looks like a Giant Puffball. It looks a little old. Bob said that they are edible when they are creamy white inside. If you slice it, and it's milky creamy white inside, it's still good. If it's already turning brown and/or green and there are powdery spores, it's too late to eat.

Now, that's assuming it's really a giant puffball. It looks like it, but it's hard to identify mushrooms from one picture on the internet. If you google "giant puffball" images, you'll see many other pictures and maybe know for sure.

my motto for shroom hunting is as follows:

If you can't ID it don't Eat it.

I do agree it is a puffball of a mushroom but I don't eat fungus. It seems hollow inside. I just found them so this is something new in my area.

I'll rephrase that. I don't eat fungus that's picked up off the ground. And which usually grows on decaying matter in moist dark places. So, no, you can't have my beer and bread or doughy edibles.

True, and that was a good attempt.
Here's the other one I found.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that one is a deflated volley ball.
