Meet the Zombie Ant Fungus That Inspired HBO's 'The Last of Us'
If you haven't been hiding under a rock — and at the thought of this particular fungus, who wouldn't be? — you've probably seen or heard of the new HBO hit series "The Last of Us," an apocalyptic nightmare based on the 2013 video game of the same name.

The Real Zombie Fungus That Inspired HBO’s ‘The Last of Us’
Humans will probably never face a fungal apocalypse, but in the insect world, mind-controlling fungi can pose a serious threat

What scientists say about the real-life zombie fungi that inspired ‘The Last of Us’
The zombies are identifiable by the fungi bursting from their bodies: a thicket of spiky tendrils, a miniature garden of mushroom-like fruiting bodies. These fungal parasites act as puppeteers, commanding and positioning the zombies to infect entire communities.
