2 of the freakiest life-history strategies I've ever heard of...


(image is from the story)

Prepare to FREAK out.

You REALLY cannot make this stuff up.




  1. I love that article. Nature is so cool!

    Just received your comments. Erm, how many cups of coffee have you had this morning? ;)

    Thanks for the encouragement.

  2. SO glad you liked it--biology gets rid of any need for frightening fiction. It's all real and goes places no one would ever imagine (like fungus controlling ants so they climb to the top of plants at night to disperse spores, then return to the nest in the day so they are not detected as weird and offed by fellow ants).

    You made me LAUGH out loud re: coffee. Answer: NO COMMENT. But, yes, feelin' v. good today. =) xoxo

  3. came to your blog via your comment on science of blogging. awesome blog! subscribing stat! :-)

  4. @Dr. Skeptic--jeeepers, thanks, and welcome! And, how funny, yes, benefited from COMMENTING on the "is commenting worthwhile" post. =)
