Summary
Examines real-life accounts of zombies in nature, including a fly-enslaving fungus, a suicide worm, and a cockroach-taming wasp, and related topics
Summary
Did you know that there are zombies among us? Don't worry, these zombies aren't after human brains: this excitingly disgusting book examines fungi, viruses, and other kinds of parasites who survive by hijacking the brains and bodies of other animals. For instance, a certain fungus can force a carpenter ant to find just the right environment before the fungus starts growing...out of the ant's head. -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
