Zombie snail and parasitic worm.
Still a better love story than Twilight.

And it’s nothing compared to, say, the Sacculina parasitic barnacle, or the Massospora fungus that infects cicadas, or even the Ophiocordyceps unilateralis fungus in ants, which now appears to control the ants muscles themselves, leaving the ant brain unable to control its own body…

I mean, they could just squirm around on a leaf and get eaten. But nooo, it takes an entire extra step just to troll a snail.

I feel sorry for the snail.

I dunno. I think Yakety Sax would be more appropriate. Less nightmare fuel.

So THAT’S what happened to him! Where’s that eagle to pluck out his eyes and turn him back into a real human. (Wait, better do the same to Steven Miller; I’m pretty sure he’s infected too.)

When I was little I found and captured a solider beetle in a jar. The thing was in constant motion, running in place in the jar. I then noticed there was a massive hole in the back of the abdomen and it looked mostly hollow. Something was eating it from the inside out. So I dumped it out and ended the poor guy.
