Slime Mold Visual Research

To gain a higher knowledge of the slime mold, i felt some further visual research was needed, as i will soon be creating the concept art for my animation. Here are various different videos all relating to the slime mold as one stage of its life. There are footage of the slime mold as a whole pulsating and slowly growing, the slime molds formation into the 'slug stage', the slug stage and movement of the slime mold and finally the slime mold in the form of its fruiting body.

Also here i have found an interesting set of videos from Professor William Seifriz, university of Pennsylvania discussing the life of the slime mold.
