I found some a few years ago and had the same thought—ugh! After researching it, I left it to decompose, but I occasionally see a patch in the same flower bed!

I love this post! You had me at dog vomit. I have always wanted to know what the heck it was.

They look like a poop of the canine, the texture, and the color of it. Maybe I encountered this before, thinking that it was a feces of my fur babies it doesn't smell bad anyway, but I need to throw it as I don't want my canines to eat or even sniff it. I had gained another information from your article Brenda and thank you for sharing this with us.

Now I feel bad I thought it was dog puke also and scraped into a bag being careful not to get any on me, then threw it in the trash. Really thinking about all the different pieces coming together for this big attempt to save their species and then I come along and scrap them all up and throw them in the trash.i wonder if their plotting revenge now. Maybe I should go apologize?

Does this stuff "bleed" when touched or disturbed?

The vomit doesn't bleed it will spore out if disturbed. If you look at it closely you can actually see it pulsate. It's a remarkable organism in that it finds its food by the shortest path. It devotes it energy to the shortest path. There was a Nature program on KQED on this entity. -Brenda
