No it deserves the whole pump.

Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure


Valuable_Lobster_615

It must be launched into the sun


Embarrassed-Ad1509

Yeet it into a supernova.


wazuno48

This is pure nightmare fuel


ovanil

looked up this parasite. the larvae are only parasitic to arthropods, which is reassuring I suppose. but holy hell if this isn’t some borderline lovecraftian nightmare bullshit


ScrembledEggs

What are they called? I’d find it myself but I really don’t want the pictures


ovanil

Gordius robustus, or the horsehair worm


ScrembledEggs

Disgusting. Thank you


ovanil

truly foul!! any time 👍🏻


Drudgel

> Gordius worms have been recovered from human vomit,[7] feces,[8] and urine. When worms are expelled from the gastrointestinal tract, their mode of entry was likely ingestion of contaminated food or water, or of an infested insect. When present in the urine, the worm may have entered the urethra from the anus or while the victim was swimming in contaminated water. Horsehair worms are not considered pathogenic or parasitic on humans and their presence in the body is incidental.[9] I don't want to live on this planet anymore


jumpbacktomeanytime

No. Fuck that all. There's not enough r/eyebleach to counteract that.


Dragonkingf0

Imagine getting worms in your dick because of butt sex


comatose_donut

EXPECTO PATRONUM... Oh wait


Important_Fruit_9987

There have been some rare cases of them hosting on vertebrae (dogs, humans) mistakenly. They also take over the brain of their host which causes the host insect to find water and drown itself. These really are some worms from hell!


skaersSabody

>There have been some rare cases of them hosting on vertebrae (dogs, humans) mistakenly. Please tell me they weren't able to do anything


Important_Fruit_9987

Horsehair worms are harmless to vertebrates, because they can't parasitize them. If humans ingest the worms, they may encounter some mild intestinal discomfort, but infection never happens. So, you won’t go diving into any water, lol.


skaersSabody

I imagined that much, I just hope they don't grow while inside humans. Jesus imagine taking taking a dump and this hell-spaghetti comes out


GalerionTheAnnoyed

At least it came out


ImNeworsomething

They are only parasitic to anthropods... For now


newgalactic

...and Fauci insists this isn't gain of function research either.


2cheeks1booty

Testing now on beagles, will let you know findings once it has taken over the planet.


swiss-y

Taking parasitology this semester, there is way to many works that can get into humans. Some are huge


FirefighterFar3132

I didnt even know parasitology was a class, would love to take it if I could


nekromania

Its not just a class. It is its own universe. Had it in medschool, truly fascinating.


FirefighterFar3132

I definitely believe you! I've done a bit of my own research out of pure curiosity but Im sure I know nothing compared to taking an actual class on it, sorry, universe class, haha


nekromania

Oh dont say that! In the uni its more focus on technical details of course. But if you find it fascinating you can learn tons on the internet. Would also recomend to learn a bit on evolution, because biology makes more sense if you understand your darwin. Also, makes paracites more fascinating.


FirefighterFar3132

Haha that is true! You can learn so much off of the internet by just searching for it. Funny you mention that as well- I'm just at the end of a biology class I decided to take! High school level, graduated, but im taking more high school courses online, oh, and I'm a big dinosaur fan too, so, there's that haha, always had an interest in animals and the sort, even the freaky parasites


nekromania

campbell's biology. Youll find any of the older editions used for cheap. I think thats a book you will enjoy. Its a great atlas to have for anyone interested in biology. Cus when u wonder about almost any biological question, that atlas will either have the answer or lead you to it.


FirefighterFar3132

I'll certainly look into it! Thank you for the recommendation!


swiss-y

Hell I'll send you a copy of my pdf textbook, it can and will gross you out at some point.

I second this. Fuck this. I wish I never knew this existed.


gocrazy305

Indeed. Fuck that.


JackfruitChance3749

I agree with this statement fuck that


Glycerine

I concur to the statement of fuck.


No-Currency458

Fuck! That fucking thing is fucking fucked up. Grammatically correct use of a single word.


Silverback1322

Chordates formosanus starts as a larva in the gut of the small insects that the mantis preys on. Once the mantis ingests the infected insect, the C. formosanus starts to grow. When it is mature, the worm secretes proteins that take over the host's nervous system, which directs the mantis to a body of water and causes it to jump in so that the worm can be excreted, at which point it breaks free to reproduce leaving a half empty mantis husk. #follow me for more recipes


MilitHistoryFan101

Chordates formosanus, sounds like You Dates, From Most Anus.


Pumuck1

Only if you like dates


mozardthebest

I think I’ve heard of similar parasites for crickets. Except those parasites usually don’t kill the cricket and it goes back to normal afterwards.


Usernameisbuley

It goes back to normal? Fascinating. Do you remember the parasite's name?


StrangeFloridaman

Very interesting how parasites adapt. Learn something everyday!

Is the preying mantis dead?


iamlegendinjapan

Yes. The worm tries to zombify it force it to water


Bishime

Do they breed in water?


iamlegendinjapan

Yes


Bishime

Kinda cool tbh!


rollitpullit

Then the mantis had the last laugh


Next_Commission_3582

## This is why I wear protection. Who knows what's inside these Tinderellas these days.


AwesomeNiss21

What kinda parasite is that? I wanna Google it


iamlegendinjapan

Horse hair


AwesomeNiss21

If that were the case I'd avoid horses like the plague Cause I ain't letting no tentical thing crawl out of my ass hole


iamlegendinjapan

They don't come from horses it's kind of like a zombie parasite killed a host and force him into water or drown them so they can reproduce


2KilAMoknbrd

*Cause I ain't letting no tentical thing crawl out of my ass hole* Butt wouldja let the *tentacle* thing crawl ***into*** your ass hole ?

OMG these things live where I live!!!! I really wish I didn't know that :(

SugarBabyWannabe

Holy f**k, that's nightmare fuel!!


diss-abilities

It just needs water to lay it eggs. That's the cycle. It manipulates the bug into finding a water source to lay eggs.


oceanman589

Thanks, I hate it


Icy_Possibility_832

Stop. Reposting. This.


bubby_1971

What the holy hell is it and where is that parasite from Uranus no joke intended?


IntentionUnclear

Are these the same ones that drown moose/deers?


Ranger343

I see other comments saying this parasite will try to get them to water to reproduce. A similarity like that is worth noting I would think. Please let me know which parasite is capable of using larger/mammalian animals as hosts if you figure it out. This whole thing, between the fucked up tentacles/tendrils and learning it essentially zombifies the creature with intention to have it drown itself is fucking madness and I want to know more, especially if it involves moose/deer.

What about the butterfly’s?

I think butterflies are ok? But really most bugs I am petrified of. Look up stinkbugs for example. Hell no.

Why didn’t you kill it!!!?!?!?


Pro_Banana

These are actually more common than you’d think. These parasites usually live in grasshoppers and similar friends. Most of the videos you see of these parasites will be of mantis though. These drive the host to jump into the water and escape into water to lay eggs.
