MYSTERY jelly has been found at more sites around Huddersfield.
Seven-year-old Ketan Jalota found a strange jelly-like substance at Buckstones on Marsden Moor.
The Golcar boy is one of dozens of people across the UK to find a puddle of the weird gloop – but no-one knows what it is.
The jelly has experts baffled and has been featured by a host of newspapers and TV shows.
It was thought it could be star jelly, the alleged remnants of a meteorite shower, but so far scientists have failed to establish exactly what it is.
Explanations have ranged from it being a fungus to an algae with some believing it could even be alien goo.
Until last week reports of the jelly were mainly in the Lake District and Scotland but now more Examiner readers have come forward with sightings across the region.
Holme man Arthur Quarmby said he had spotted the greyish white substance a few times on walks on the moors above Holmfirth.
Rebecca Robinson said the jelly first appeared on land at her farm three years ago and said it came back when the weather turned grim.
The Slaithwaite woman said she had picked some up and said she backed another theory that it was something to do with frogs.
Rebecca, who has lived in the area for more than 30 years, said the jelly only appeared when it was really damp.
She said: “I’ve picked up a big handful of it and it does smell of frogs.
“We do get a lot of frogs up here but I’ve never seen any near the jelly.
“It’s not sticky, it doesn’t mark or burn the skin. It never happens in the summer and it’s always on marshy boggy fields.
“It looks like frog spawn except without the dots.
“It is weird, I think it’s something natural; I don’t think it’s anything dodgy.”
Honley couple Colin and Joy Bray found some of the mysterious gloop near their frog pond.
But Joy said they were baffled by the find as the frogs were hibernating at the time.
She said: “We have a small frog pond and discovered quite a large blob of this solid opaque jelly plus smaller deposits, scattered around the edge of the pond last January.
“We were totally mystified at the time and put it down to being deposited by some wild animal visitor.”
Walkers who found the jelly near Patterdale in the Lake District last week, sent a sample to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh for analysis.
Botanist, Dr Hans Sluiman investigated and ruled out the algae, fungus and alien options.
He said there was evidence the sample came from some animal, possibly a stag, but was calling on help from a zoologist for answers.
