An international network of/for intelligent organisms
I work in natural history documentaries and I'm looking into filming a slime mould / decomposition sequence for a tropical rain-forest story. I was chatting to the swarm lab (http://www.theswarmlab.com/) and they recommended checking this forum and chatting to you all.
I'm trying to find and source visual species of slime mould sclerotium to work with but all I can seem to find are: Physarium polycephalum and Dictostelium discodeum from online suppliers (Carolina). I'm definitely going to try and film P. polycephalum but I was wondering if there are any that you would recommend or know where to find slime moulds in a colour other than yellow and that move similarly to P. polycephalum in their swarming phase? I've seen timelapses of pinks, reds and whites that all look really interesting. I'm a bit stuck so if any of you have any advice would be much appreciated.
