I need help with identification

Asked October 3, 2019, 4:40 PM EDT

I dicovered this growing in a gardenbed of mine. I've never seen anything like this. It appears there is 3 different types. I was going to empty my beds but i don't know if they are poisonous and how to get rid of them.

According to a mushroom specialist, she has this to say "These are stink horn mushrooms. The red one is the dog stink horn. The tall white one is the common stink horn. The round one is a juvenile common stink horn. They are harmless but repulsive. Disturbing the soil and digging up the area will get rid of them.
