How much do we really know about the world we live in??

"The slime mold, Physarum polycephalum, also has almost 720 sexes, can move without legs and heals itself in two minutes if cut in half."

Even a RED one... Pretty interesting. Did that mold take over the plant and eventually kill it?

Fascinating, Dap!!! Those pictures depict animals/plants that lay beyond our solid understanding of our knowledge of life itself!!!

The red one started of as yellow (when it was new and fresh)...air aged (died?) It turned that color/dried out.

I don't recall it killing the plant--but I don't really remember.
