Who would of thought…a murderous fungi!!

One of the most interesting fungi in the world is the “Zombie Fungus”. It takes over the mind of an insect, causing it to climb up a branch and cling to the underside of a leaf before mummification. Once locked in place, the mushroom-like fruiting body of the cordyceps sprouts from the insect and eventually releases its spores. 😳🌿🐜🍄👀
