This little creature is so 3-dimensional and fast moving that it is hard to capture in a single picture.

Description

Found on unknown log originally drift wood on the Waikato river. Also log has been burnt in the past.

Seemed very soft to the touch, and "melted" upon touch.

Possibly Calocera cornea ? Or maybe it is / was a slimemold ?

Description

I worked really hard to get a picture/ it was a small patch. I think this is really cool stuff- I didn't even see this at first because I was focused on a small lizard that was also on the log, but the lizard ran off and then I saw this. It's the second sighting of Chocolate tube slime mold I've had on the Cicada Trail, and I haven't seen it anywhere else yet.

Description from Wikipedia

Protozoa are a diverse group of unicellular eukaryotic organisms, many of which are motile. Originally, protozoa had been defined as unicellular protists with animal-like behavior, e.g., movement. Protozoa were regarded as the partner group of protists to protophyta, which have plant-like behaviour, e.g. photosynthesis.
