    Someone knows what this is? (Biology)

    I'll see; if I happen to come across it the next time I take a walk there, I'll consider taking a sample of it.

    Someone knows what this is? (Biology)

    I'm not really an expert in biology, so I cannot be completely sure about this. The reason I think it's not man made is that I don't see why someone would dump a gelatinous substance in a small pit only for somebody to find it and wonder what it is. I strongly doubt it is a body fluid, in case I...

    Hard to tell, actually. The whole puddle felt like a mixture of the substance and water, maybe a little more concentrated at the surface.

    Interesting, I didn't know that! So, if it indeed has been laying there for a while, could it actually be a decomposed jellyfish? It doesn't look like a jellyfish in any way whatsoever except for the gelatinousness, but again, it might have been there for a while.

    I'm not sure how long it has been there, but I guess the water would vaporize sooner or later. There's a lot of sunny weather now, warming the rocks and making water vaporize quicker. When I was there yesterday, I almost got sunburnt, so I guess there's a lot of UV out there. Could it really...

    Unfortunately, smelling what it was wasn't the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw it. If I ever come across that puddle again, I'll check out. That's what I think, too, based on what I've heard so far. There are transparent jellyfish around, the problems are that the first jellyfish...

    I see. I also assumed the same, given that it was so close to the sea. It will be interesting to see which suggestions I get.

    Ah, thank you, Borek! When I tried, the picture filled an area 16 times the size of my screen. Maybe I just did it wrong.

    There are no trees nearby, though. If you click on my map link, you'll see it's on plain rock. The trees that are there are too far away for the sap to have reached the puddle, and then it would probably also have reached other puddles, which it didn't.

    That's odd. Firewall, maybe? The image is too large to upload here, see if Dropbox works for you: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59472739/other_files/photos/WP_20140524_14_41_22_Pro__highres.jpg [Broken]

    Someone knows what this is? (Biology)

    While this isn't really homework, I came across something rather odd when I was taking a walk yesterday, interesting enough to get me online to seek knowledge of what I found. I live in southern Norway, and took a walk along the coastline on some rocks, right by the sea, when I came across this...
