The tropical fungus Ophiocordyceps infects ants’ central nervous systems. By the time the fungi been in the insect bodies for nine days, they have complete control over the host’s movements.
That's the zombie ant, isn't it? The fungus makes the ant crawl out on a limb and starve to death, then it sprouts a pillar out of the ant's neck and releases spores into the wind! :D
