I stumbled upon this post this moring. Not exactly great for breakfast consumption, but a fascinating run-down of a group of fungi that prey on insects, control their behavior by infecting their brain; and then a species or two of worm that likewise infect insects and control their behavior and exhibit amazing survival behaviors. Read and watch all the videos.
