Parasitic Cordyceps Fungi - Video

Dr. Fong Says:
At least you don't have Cordyceps Infection.


"All Cordyceps species are parasitic, mainly on insects and other arthropods. The mycelium invades and eventually replaces the host tissue, while the elongated fruiting body (stroma) may be cylindrical, branched, or of complex shape."

In this case the stroma erupts out of the head of the infected ant.
