Paris zoo adds slime mold ‘blob’ to its list of attractions

  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. Slime molds are one of nature’s most enduring mysteries. Operating like a tiny community of individual organisms working toward a single goal, slime molds spread across a surface in search of food which it digests and uses as fuel.

A person was taken to hospital following a four-vehicle crash which shut a road for more than three hours.

Emergency services were called to the A541 in Hendre near Mold just before 3pm on Monday following the collision.

The road was closed in both directions while firefighters, paramedics and police officers dealt with the incident.

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said one person was taken to hospital, while two others were treated at the scene of the incident.
