When: 2009-06-25

Collection location: Oak Hill Animal Hospital, Oak Hill, West Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Eddee (eddeeee)

No specimen available

Found this at an animal hospital garden. I have read they call it he dog vomit slime mold. I guess this is an appropriate place to be growing then. This popped up after a recent rain storm and moves about 7 in a night. After some time it hardens up and if touched releases brown spores
