CREEPY: Parasite Worms Emerged From Zombie Mantis

There are many shocking videos that showed massive worms emerging from zombified mantises. It turned out that the mantises were long dead and been subject to the control of hairworms(scientific name: Chordodes formosanus). These worms pose terror among arthropods other than mantises.

CREEPY: Parasite Worms Emerged From Zombie Mantis

There are hundreds of species of hairworms and they are known parasites that choose arthropods as their hosts such as insects like mantis,grasshoppers,cockroaches,beetles,arachnids,and crustaceans. As larvae, they are microscopic free swimming critters, waiting for an unfortunate arthropod to ingest them. Strangely, the praying mantis seems to be the most common victim of hairworms.

Hairworms thrive on their host's abdomen. By the time it reaches maturity it will be able to have control on the unfortunate host's bodily processes including its nervous system. When the worm reached the  point that the host's body can't accommodate it anymore, it will break free from it's host to breed... and to spread terror among other arthropods.
