Gallery: Beautiful (Yet Disgusting) Slime Molds

Stemonitis fusca

These images prove that molds can actually be super pretty. It is not just mold though; it is slime mold, referring to part of its life cycles where it can appear as gelatinous slime. Slime mold is usually found in soil, lawns and on the forest floor, where it feeds on microorganisms that live in any type of dead plant material. Fun fact: when food is in short supply, slime molds congregate and start moving as a single body. And did you know that they are able to solve mazes!
