A Mind Controlling Fungus?!

Amazing, horrific, awesome, severe balancing of nature - which this shows is not in the least bit warm and fuzzy, but more brutal. 

The music accompanying this footage adds even more contrast - emphasizing how reality is far stranger than fiction and making me question how different is having too many people from having too many ants - and how will we be brought into balance?

Nature is mighty bizarre sometimes. This would be one of those times.

"But these attacks do have a positive effect on the jungle's diversity, since parasites like these stop any one group of animal getting the upper hand. The more numerous a species becomes the more likely it will be attacked by its nemesis - a cordyceps fungus."
