I love nature documentaries and videos.
I realize that this probably makes me a giant nerd, but I can’t help it. I could sit want watch Planet Earth all day long, then spend the evening curled up watching National Geographic documentaries all night. I find them incredibly interesting, and wonderfully relaxing.
So, when I saw that my friend Jae had posted a short nature clip on her Facebook the other day, I clicked it immediately… and I wasn’t disappointed. You see, there are two types of documentaries that I love most of all: oceans and bugs.
I love documentaries about the ocean and its inhabitants because it’s so… mysterious. There is so much that we don’t yet know, and I find sea creatures to be absolutely fascinating. Seriously–Giant Squids?
How cool is THAT?
Anyway. I also love watching documentaries about bugs. I wouldn’t put them in the majestic and mysterious category with the ocean, they are more of a creepy and fascinating watch. Also, I am terrified of almost all of them.
…but somehow I love watching videos about them. Weird? I think yes.
So, when I saw that Jae had posted a video about Zombie Ants–my curiosity was peeked, and I was not disappointed. Just watch, my lovelies, just watch.
CRAZY. For more info, read here: New Zombie-Creating Fungi
Can you even handle it? I’m glad those beasts are in the jungle and not in my house.
Scariest thing OF LIFE
Hahaha… well, the music at the end of the video doesn’t help much with that either.
I secretly loved it though. Spider videos are the ones that freak me out!

CREEPY!!! Plus, I’m pretty sure that ant was eating its own feces before it succombed. Ugh. And yeah, the music makes it SO much creepier.
