Slime Molds

The last word in ignorance is the man who says of an animal or plant: ‘What good is it?’

Aldo Leopold (1886-1948), Round River

Beyond an easy description, we will simply say that Slime Molds can look like gelatinous “goo.” They are not in the Plant Kingdom. Previously, they were considered to be fungi, but currently, they are in the Protista Kingdom which is for organisms that are not plant, animal, or fungus!
