Fun Fact #56: Stalactite, stalagmite, snottite.. wait what? Snottite, so named because of its slimy gooey.. snotty texture (and looks!), lives hanging down from caves slowly dripping with water and ooze. These are colonies of bacteria that produce a biofilm to protect themselves from the cave environment. The goop covers the walls and when it forms on the roof or on a ledge it forms stalactite's but they not made of rock, but bacteria and their exudate.
