This might put you off your dinner, be warned. Do not read further if you want to keep an appetite:

this is possibly the worst thing that can happen to an animal.

Leucochloridium paradoxum, a parasitic maggot.

The eggs are stored within bird faeces. The snails eat the faeces and are infected. The parasites hatch and slowly eat the snail from within, keeping it alive as long as possible. Slowly they tunnel to the brain and affect the behaviour of the snail. the snail crawls about in day back and forth across the leaf. By this time the maggots are in the antennal eyes with only a thin film of skin separating them. They squirm back and forth creating attraction.

http://www.semioticon.com/seo/M/images/mimicry_2.jpg http://www.weichtiere.at/images/weichtiere/schnecken/leucochloridium.jpg

A bird spots the snail and finally puts it out of its misery - thus eating the new eggs.

the pulsating antenna acting as a beacon:
http://people.smu.edu/eheise/Leucochloridium.gif










The spores of the Cordyceps fungi in the Amazon are meat eating and parasitic. They target mostly ants.


The ants grow a fuzz they cannot get rid off and that drives them insane,
it slowly consumes them and kills them. From their collapsed body, grows a 'flowering' stalk.
Now this is the creepy bit- the stalk changes form with different species:

All the pics are real man, just type in google the name and youll find a selection of pics from different sources; alot from specialist nerdy scientist ones. The mekong catfish is one of the biggest catfish you can get out of three - the Amazon (S America), Mekong (SE Asia) and Wels (Europe and introduced into N America), all grow that big. Even bigger are sturgeons, which are purported to grow to 20ft or more. If that catfish looks weird in the pic, it's because its being stuffed by the museum taxidermists.

Youre right about the camel spiders tho' if you look the spiders can fit in the palm of your hand. Theyre not infamous for being big, but that theyre fuzzy and have more than 8 legs, like their Malaysian cousins - there are 20 legs in that pic :D

That's an Alligator Gar(fish). Native to rivers of southeast US can grow to 10 feet long and 300 lbs.

Nice thread showcasing our planet's incredible biodiversity. Sadly, more than a few of these "freaky" species are highly endangered and probably will not exist in 50 years (e.g. large food fish such as the Mekong Giant Catfish, any animals native to tropical forests of Southeast Asia, all the primates shown, some amphibians, etc.)

Out of all the animals shown so far, I think the cassowary bird is the most scary. Disembowelment is not a pleasant way to go.

Those giant catfishes are also pretty intimidating, too. They can basically swallow you whole if you happen to be in the river.
