Slime molds (myxomycetes). A curious group of organisms with animal-like characteristics - it moves like an amoeba and eats microbes - and fungus-like characteristics - it sprouts like a mushroom and spreads spores.
Some days they'll steadily wander around on the hunt and others they'll sit quietly and grow like a mushroom...
This incomprehensible lifeform is fascinating enough in itself, but there's more...
The fruiting bodies created by slime molds are indescribably beautiful!
They form shapes of such complexity that it's hard to believe they are generated by a single cell organism.

Then there are the wide variety of colors: reds, whites, blues, yellows, and even brilliant metallic hues.
Discover the slime mold: a curious and mysterious organism.

Large and beautiful photography is used to bring their fascinating shapes to life on the page.
