Was this one of the ones from the paddock past the dam? If you cut it in half it will look like it's packed with rice grain like structures. These will be fine at towards the base, the most immature. Then becoming large as you move upwards. Towards the top, if it's spores are maturing they will become a dusty brown colour. Live dangerously and have fun and cut it in half! You are right, before these fully mature they do have a tough skin and so could be mistaken for a scleroderma. The give away with this species is that balck spotting/mottling. There is at least one species that is pale in colour.

Yes - matches your description. The rice grai like structures were yellow.

Yes that colour's right. As the spores mature they will become powdery and a dusty bown. The fungus will start and erode from the top as the spores mature.
