Very cool. I hadn't seen that particular bit before. The time-lapse footage of the fungal spike erupting from the ant's head is priceless.

But y'know, those fungi aren't restricted to the jungles. I've seen similar parasitic growths when I was younger (and a budding entomologist) in Central Illinois. Just sayin' :grin:

So...bathe daily and make sure the food is clean before you eat? :biggrin:
