Slime Molds are what's called a plasmodium, meaning they're basically a sac of fluids with many separate nuclei. The move by committee, meaning each nuclei "chooses" which way to ooze the plasmodium itself, sometimes spliting up.

Yes. Many slime molds take on a amoeba-like structure and move with pseuopods.Slime OOZE.

They ooze along Surfaces.

Yes they do. A rather weird life-form that locomotes by ameboic outflow.

Molds are considered to be microbes and do not form a specific taxonomic or phylogenetic grouping, but can be found in the divisions Zygomycota and Ascomycota. There are Fungi known as molds. Slime molds and water molds are not Fungi.There are Fungi known as molds. Slime molds and water molds are not Fungi.

slime mold and water molds are both fungi like protists.

Slime molds are actually protists, even though they were originally classified as fungi. Slime molds can be classified as funguslike protists, because they are heterotrophs and feed on dead organisms.

Two broad groups of slime molds are recognized. The individual cells of cellular slime molds remain distinct-- separated by cell membranes-- during every phase of the mold's life cycle. Slime molds that pass through a stage in which their cells fuse to form large cells with many nuclei are called acellular slime molds.

Slime molds are all cellular. The unique fact is that they may or may not be multinucleated.

slime molds differ from other protists because unlike most protists slime molds are bisible the unaided eye at some stages of there life cycle

the phylum of slime mold is Myxomycota.

Slime molds are heterotrophic.

Slime molds are considered to be heterotrophs. Slime molds obtain their energy by consuming soil, decaying wood, and other decaying materials.

The term for non-cellular slime mold is a plasmodium slime mold. Usually, cellular slime molds live as singular slime unless a chemical is used to unite them into one organism. Plasmodiums are connected to each other from the start, forming a giant cell.

Slime molds and amoebas are similar because they both et bacteria a and are very shapeless.

No, they are heterotrophs.

Slime Molds are classified as Protista.

Slime molds get energy by ingesting bacteria in the soil.
