"Slime molds, which are not actually fungi but cousins of single-celled amoebas, are goopy organisms that can find their way through a maze and remember the location of food—all without the benefit of a brain or nervous system."

💛 slime mold plasmodium 💛
slime molds normally live as single cell organisms within a substrate, breaking down rotting vegetation and consuming bacteria, fungi, and yeasts. but when food is scarce and the conditions are right they send out a chemical signal which causes them to congregate together and merge into a mass of plasmodium. the slime mold moves, consumes, and disperses as plasmodium until it finds a suitable place to form fruit bodies and send out its spores.
