Nature’s Parasitic Hellscape

Anthony and Jeff delve into perhaps the most disturbing topic they have ever tackled.  An article in National Geographic features the top 5 most terrifying “zombie” creatures – parasites that get inside of other creatures and force them to change their behavior, malform, or otherwise serve the parasite’s procreation.  These are some of the most horrible organisms in the natural world.  This episode is not recommended for sensitive listeners.
