Although this article is from the future (May 16, 2009 -- odd), I read several articles about this topic earlier this week... Zombie Fire Ants!!!
There is a species of South American flies that actually turn fire ants into walking zombies. The process is like this - these flies attack fire ants by injecting them with eggs. As the larvae grow they kill the brain of the ant, which causes the ant to wander around like a zombie. After about two weeks the head of the ant falls off and a new fly is born, ready to repeat the process!
Maybe we should really thank the hackers from Matt's post back in February. Nazi Zombies could be more real than we think!
