    Link: Gordian Worm Emerges From Its Cricket Host - This worm injects chemicals into the cricket and forces it to kill itself. Once dead, it wiggles out of the dead body.

    Yeah, not as cool as the ones that control spider`s minds, force them to build nests specifically for the parasite, and THEN make the spider commit suicide. Creepy.

    It`s quite odd to see such a large parasite emerge from a little cricket, just remember we have MUCH larger parasites that infect humans ;) The beef tapeworm can be anywhere from 9-65 or more. Yum!

    Sorry. Had to get that out. Anyone know where those damn worms are located? Luckily, according to Wikipedia, they only infect things like beatles, grasshoppers, and crustaceans (ew, I`ll remember that when I feel the need to eat lobster, thanks).

    Zerocyde "As soon as we colonize mars I`m drating going. I know they won`t let contaminants like bugs and poo there."

    Do you not like natures little recyclers? We need them. Even bugs like this one play their part in keeping the balance.

    this just made me remember about the fugus that infected ants and made them climb to a high place to release spores, the zinger? they were already rotted from the inside by the time they got to a tall enough object.
