Paris zoo adds slime mold ‘blob’ to its list of attractions
If you find yourself at the Paris Zoological Park this weekend you might come across a creature you wouldn't normally expect to see on display. It’s not a plant or an animal, and it doesn’t have a brain, but it does demonstrate shocking levels of intelligence. It’s a slime mold nicknamed “the Blob,” and it’s incredibly cool.

Police said it was possible the driver left the car in reverse before exiting and simply forgot. Whatever the case, the dog seemed to enjoy his brief trip and was unharmed after an hour doing donuts in the middle of the road. Good boy.
