What's the common thread?
a) Cryptobranchus alleganiensis
b) Eptatretus stoutii
c) Fuligo spp.
Highlight for answer: C. alleganiensis is the hellbender salamander, aka "snot otter," E. stoutii is the Pacific slime hag, Fuligo is a slime mold, and Okra is, well, okra. There was an article on the radio today that used the term snot otter, and I just love it.
