Caption: Macrophotograph of the orange slime mould Trichia decipiens. Slime moulds are a curious division of plants with many of the characteristics of animals. They consist of a slow-moving mass of amoeboid protoplasm, which engulfs particles of solid food which it encounters. The majority of slime moulds are saprophytes, feeding on dead or decaying organic matter.
