Weird organism on my tree

Asked July 8, 2019, 4:07 PM EDT

I've had this strange looking thing on my tree for awhile. It's changing a little now. Please help me identify what this is.

This appears to be a tree fungus. How high on the tree is it located? What type of tree is it on? How large is it? Looking forward to hearing back.

No idea what kind of tree, 5 foot or so up, about the size of a brown toad. I will look into what kind of tree it is.

I am thinking this is a bracket fungus but usually I see them lower in the trees. Is there some injury in the tree near the "brown toad"?
