Game of Molds

Published on May 24, 2016 by Clever&Cool

Someone recreated the Game of Thrones intro with slime mould

That video’s been circulating on Reddit for quite a while, but this week, genius users ButteredToads and justsomething realised that it actually fit in perfectly with the opening of everyone’s favourite fantasy show.

According to the original macro footage, the fungus and slime mould you’re seeing here is a mix of:

  • Aspergillus fumigatus
  • Botrytis sp.
  • Mucor sp.
  • Trichoderma sp.
  • Cladosporium sp.

This sped-up time-lapse was captured on a Nikon D70s, and what you’re watching is the usual slow growth of different fungal and slime mould species as they expand and grow around a petri dish.
