A Slime Mold Grows Up

Just in case you didn't really think that slime molds moved, here's nifty video of one as it goes from placid slime mold feeding on its log to producing its spore-producing appendages. Note the presence of the critters all around - that will give you and idea of just how quickly this thing moves!

Thanks to Phil over at Cabinet of Curiosities for posting a similar slime mold video - nothing like a nifty nature moment to capture one's attention and make 'em start searching for more!
