    That`s a cool parasite, doesn`t kill the host and uses another species to spread.

    Humans have plenty of parasites too. I`d hate to go all Live Aid, but they`re mostly in the 3rd world so we don`t hear about them so much.

    Someone put a human parasite thing on next. THAT would be gross! hee hee

    From wikipedia:
    Penis fencing:
    Flatworm reproduction is hermaphroditic, meaning each individual produces eggs and sperm. When two flatworms mate, they exchange sperm so both become fertilized. Some flatworms, such as Pseudobiceros hancockanus engage in penis fencing, in which two individuals fight, trying to pierce the skin of the other with their penises. The first to succeed inseminates the other, which must then carry and nourish the eggs. They usually do not fertilize their own eggs. Turbellarians classified as planarians (usually freshwater, non-parasitic) can also reproduce asexually by transverse fission. The body constricts at the midsection, and the posterior end grips a substrate. After a few hours of tugging, the body rips apart at the constriction. Each half grows replacements of the missing pieces to form two whole flatworms. This also means that if one of these flatworms is cut in half, each half will regenerate into two separate fully-functioning flatworms.

    Sweet, mind control bugs really DO exist! Ya know, if the snail didn`t eat the bird poo, he wouldn`t be in that predicament.
