Yeah, it sounds like something a writer would make up. But it is real. Very, very real. Have you heard of stalagmites and stalactites, well meet their very snotty cousin.
Apparently this lovely bacteria hangs from caves and has the consistency of nasal mucus (aka snot) and seeing one live and in person should be on every microbiologist’s bucket list.
Just the thought of it makes me gag.
Have a lovely weekend!
