Mould in nut shell

Earlier tonight I gave our 2 a nut each to enjoy. After they'd been eaten, I went over to pick up the shells and found the brazil nut shell on the inside was mouldy. I opened another nut from the same pack and it was fine, and this is the first one I've seen. Is this aspergillus mould would anyone know? I'm worried about Bebe as it was her nut that had the mould.

Most compromised nuts it can be due to incorrect drying / humidity during after picking or incorrect storage.
Seems the vast majority when compromised it is aspergillius which also caused micotoxins ...... Some do apparently grow a relative to penicillin.... Either way it's not good

One of my early jobs that I did not have long was building X-Ray machines as part of a team, it was at a workshop that also had a showroom that sold cheep new Russian cars, A new Moskavich was less than £500, I doubt if a new car will ever be that price again,
