Unit 6: Slime Mold fruting bodies research

Here is my research images on the fruiting bodies of a slime mold. They came from different species of slime molds some are red, yellow or white and they each have their own name. I kept on looking at the yellow slime molds, which are called Physarum Polcephalum, thinking it was their life cycle that Mr Klappa shown use. But with further research I discovered that the slime mold life cycle diagram belong to the Dictyostelium slime mold (the white one that look like a slug). but that doesn't matter because all the slime mold goes through the same life cycle but have different forms while doing it.
