Yeah, I read that article too! It's so creepy! The pictures of the fungi growing out of the head of the ant are almost too much for me to look at! I heard that fungi's life cycle is slowly diminishing though and that they might not be around much longer... We'll see.
Anyway, there are so many species of fungi in the world, I'm sure scientists will find a similar fungi one day. They can't be the only ones out there with all of the life that has already been found on this planet. I just hope they never find one that lives near my home. Haha! I would totally creeped out knowing that the bugs that live in my backyard are secretly being controlled by a species of fungi.
