I found this in an old cottenwood tree.  Is it a lions mane, cuz I wanna eat it?  Is there any thing else it could be?  In other words, is there any possibility of it being a look alike and being poisonous?  Thank You

It looks like Hericium abietis, one of the Lion's Mane mushrooms that occurs in California.  It should be safe to eat, but always sample a small amount at first in case you are allergic to it.
