Did You Know that Cordyceps, the ‘Zombie’ Parasite Responsible for the Events in The Last of Us is a Real Thing…?

If you saw my post about The Last of Us a few days ago you’ll know I loved the show so much that I’m now playing through the video game it’s based on. So far I’m blown away by how faithful the show is to the game!

Did you know though that Cordyceps, the fungus responsible for the fall of civilisation in the story is a real thing? Fortunately it can’t infect humans, but ants and spiders didn’t get so lucky.

I found this video really interesting.
