See this little ant up there with some kind of fancy
antenna on its little head?
That is not an antenna made for that specific ant at all.
That is part of a parasite that comes from some
mushrooms. This parasite is very peculiar, due to the fact
that it goes into the brain of the ant, and starts making the
ant changing its behavior. is getting controlled. When
the parasite is at its max, it will then proceed to kill the
ant entirely, after it has forced it to a high ground, so the
parasite can make that little antenna. From the ball of the
antenna, spores will then drop, and get in the air, possibly
going on to the infected ant' s colony, meaning intire
colonies has been killed by this parasite.
Ants infected by this parasite, is called , you
can figure out why that is..
Now, since there actually is a parasite, able to makes
zombies, then the question is whether it' s possible for this
parasite to be able to mutate so much, that it' s able to
infect the humankind. .
Most of the diseases we have nowadays, actually originate
from animals, . typhus is originally from ratifiers, that
would infect rats, which would the infect humans with the
decease.
So, it is actually possible that there one day will be a
zombieapocalypse!
