The world’s coolest parasite; it makes zombie

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 07, 2006

The world’s coolest parasite; it makes zombie cockroaches! When it wants to lay its eggs, the Ampulex compressa wasp stuns a cockroach, numbs its brain, steers it back to its nest, lays an egg inside it, and eventually a larvae forms, it lunches on the cockroach’s insides, and then hatches fully grown. Just…wow. (thx, tien)
