Scientists perplexed by 'blob' which looks like a fungus but acts like an animal
I am always stoked to read articles on slime molds :-).
I expect the reporters took some license around the "perplexed" bit, as although slime molds are generally insufficiently studied, a fair bit along some lines (such as Kingdom) has been known for quite some time, so it would be surprising for a scientist to not have at least a basic knowledge.
I, on the other hand, have no basic knowledge, and am quite amazed:
Thank you Wendy - yes I am amazed at them too. They are everywhere, perhaps they run the planet....
