LOL! Probably mine, thats what my freind called it when he fragged it for me. They are probably in the same family though.

Maybe someone else can chime in and set us straight

Give it time. It will grow. Mine's the size of a cantelope. That's after I fragged over half of it out. It will grow many "fingers" and branches and will right it's top heavy appearance.

I have seen such leathers that weigh well over 25lbs.

The branching aspect is kind of random from what I can tell from the ones I have had.
