Holy crap! Zombie snails!!!

“A shade-loving snail has been invaded by worms. These parasites take over the snail’s brain, and push into his tentacles, transforming them into swollen, colorful, pulsating targets…” 😮

This parasite is apparently called Leucochloridium paradoxum. There are many other “mind-controlling” parasites such as the Spinochordodes Tellinii which infect grasshoppers and force them to drown themselves.
