Ernst HaeckelKunstformen der Natur (1899)SLIME MOLD FRUITING BODIES
Myxomycete plasmodia are generally from as small as a few centimeters to several meters square in size (among the largest).
There are two types:
acellular, consisting of multiple nuclei encased in a single cell wall,
cellular, which are composites of multiple, individual cells.
Slime molds are thought to be one of the first organisms formed as a collective of individual cells. After slime molds become plasmodial they roam and devour bacteria, fungi, and detritus, moving at a rate of about 1/25th of an inch per hour, or 2 cm per min. among the quicker. At the end of its career as a plasmodium the slime mold settles in a place where there is a draft that can carry aloft its spores, which it releases from structures called “fruiting bodies.”
Myxomycete taxonomy is based on these fruiting bodies.

To ensure that mud and dirt doesn’t get tracked into their nice forest home, chipmunks are incredibly hygienic and will constantly groom themselves from head to tail.
