Totally off topic - ant mind control - fascinating

Hi folks,

This is about as far off topic as you can conceive of. But, you heard it here!! This is about a parasite, Dicrocoelium dendriticum, that has mind control over ants, and has the most complicated life cycle of any parasite, involving ants, cows (or rabbits, sheep, etc), and snails. It's an interesting short video clip.
