Paris Zoo Unveils “The Blob” That Makes No Sense

  • A new exhibit at a Paris zoo features a moving slime that has 720 sexes and that can heal itself within minutes.
  • It’s actually a yellowish mold and is called "The Blob" because of its characteristics. It looks like a fungus but acts like an animal, and that it has no mouth or stomach but can detect food and digest it. The Blob can also move without legs, and if you cut it in half it will heal itself in two minutes.
  • It also has no brain and yet it can learn. The director of the Paris Zoological Park says if you merge two blobs together, one will transmit its knowledge to the other.
