Cool Video: Parasitic Mind Control

cool-video-parasitic-mind-control

That’s right. Another video about parasites and snails. This time ants are also involved and the parasite in question is the liver fluke. In this video, ants consume snail slime that is full of liver fluke eggs. It burrows into the brain of the ants, and then is capable of controlling them. It won’t bother controlling the ants unless a certain predator shows up that is a suitable host, in which case the parasite begins its mind control and forces the ants to move to areas in which they’ll be consumed. This results in the parasite reaching the predator’s liver, where it lives the rest of its life. In the video below’s case, a cow is the victim.
