Zombie ants

Buggin' Out For Biology

As a follow-up on the zombie snails there have been records on zombie ants. And just like the zombie snails they are only used for population growth purposes. The ants which are called Tropical Carpenter Ants live up high in the tree tops they are eating the fungus which has drastically changed the ants attitude if you will. They have become careless and zombie like. Their only purpose in life is to get to a critical spot for the fungus that needs nourishment and dies. Only the to speed up population growth rapidly.
