    Sadly the cuddly looking mammals get support, but not anything invisible to the naked eye. I did read the report a few days ago, but glad you highlighted the article for the forum @Junglekeeper.

    I have to admit I didn't know there were such things aquatic fungi; I thought fungi only existed on land.

    There are plenty of aquatic fungi that are much studied and appreciated; they are called yeasts.
