  1. slime bacteria

    Slime bacteria, also known as slime mold, are a diverse group of organisms that are mostly non-photosynthetic, non-pathogenic, and exist in the environment as single cells or a large mass of cells that can move and behave like a giant amoeba. They are known for their ability to form a slimy layer, or a "slime sheath," that helps them move across surfaces and protect them from dehydration and predation. Despite the name, they are not true bacteria, but belong to various taxonomic groups, including Myxobacteria and Dictyostelium.
