People in a North Texas community are wondering what to make of strange blobs developing at Lake Grapevine in Grapevine, Texas.

The gooey growing globs are attaching themselves to everything.

Park visitors worry that they mean there's something wrong with the environment but city officials say the blobs are good because they clean the water by feeding on microscopic particles.

Park officials say the slimy objects are fresh water invertebrates called 'zooids'also known as 'bryozoa' or 'moss animals' whose presence signifies good water quality. Once the blobs have done their job, they dry up like a leaf. [Quoted from CBS4]
