A mysterious jelly-like substance has been turning up all over an RSPB nature reserve in Somerset.The slime has been reported several times over the last few centuries and is sometimes referred to as “star jelly” based on the belief that it falls from the sky during meteor showers. Workers at the reserve are not so sure however, some believe that the substance could be a form of cyanobacteria while others subscribe to the theory that the slime is the product of amphibians such as frogs."It’s great that in this day and age that there are still mysteries out there," said spokesman Tony Whitehead. "One suggested it was neither animal nor plant, and another that it didn’t contain DNA, although it does give the appearance of something ‘living’."
