This zombie snail. A parasitic worm Leucochloridium has taken over its motor functions and eye stalks, making them into caterpillar mimics so birds will eat them. The worm can then reproduce in the bird's GI tract, eventually transmitting via its faeces 🤯
I wrote this US Near East foreign policy explainer
Simular ser una oruga para ser comido.
I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out that many fellow humans are subject to similar zombifying creatures. via
