Summary:
Are zombies real? Scientists know this for sure: dead people do not come back to live and start walking around, looking for trouble. But there are things that can take over the bodies and brains of innocent creatures, turning them into senseless slaves. Meet nature's zombie makers -- including a fly-enslaving fungus, a suicide worm, and a cockroach-taming wasp -- and their victims.
