    Link: Mushroom Slime Mold Timelapse - A lot of this is going to look like it`s NSFW, it`s not--it`s just gross nature filmed at incredibly high rates of speed

    Actually its not filmed at high rates of speed. Its film is sped up AFTER its filmed. When a bullet is filmed so you can see it it is filmed at high speed rates this is time-lapse compression.

    That stinkhorn is called Dictyophora indusiata. No clue why it grows the net like thing.

    The stinkhorn is a very is a very slow moving predator witch feeds on snails, when it see one it slowly launches its net around it to stop it from escaping. This has been Dr.D on stinkhorn mushrooms.

    patticakes "What`s the music?"

    That`s not music. That`s the actual sound made by the mushroom slime mold. It subsonic, so you can only hear it when it`s sped up like this.
