Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse… If You’re an Ant

There is a video below. I warn you now, it is not for the fainthearted. It’s an extract from one of BBC’s David Attenborough documentaries ‘Planet Earth’ and concerns a parasitic fungus that preys upon certain ants. It’s the zombie apocalypse in ant form. I’ll be honest, I watched this video a while ago and, though I thought it would be interesting to post, I couldn’t bring myself to watch it again (though I am a bit of a wuss and have a particular dislike of freaky parasites). Nonetheless, it is fascinating.

Sorry in advance for the nightmares. xx
