Wow, those mind-controllers are creepy. I didn't realize there were so many of them. I was especially impressed by the caterpillar infesters. I can just imagine two wasp larvae up in the "cockpit" of the caterpillar giving each other a high five after they used their host to ward off a tiny spider or something.

Yeah, I hadn't realized there were so many mind controllers either. I am curious how those wasp larvae are able to get the caterpillar to defend the other larvae.
