The Oatmeal – Parasite Zombies

Are you getting tired of parasite zombie posts yet?  I hope not, because I’ve got a lot more where these have come from!  Starting with this really awesome (I mean, REALLY AWESOME) cartoon by The Oatmeal.   

Dicrocoelium dendriticumthe lancet liver fluke, is a parasite of livestock (e.g., cows, sheep).  Of course, Parasite of the Day has written about this awesome parasite before.  I highly recommend popping over there for more details.  And of course, check out the full cartoon from The Oatmeal!


A taste of The Oatmeal‘s brilliant cartoon about the lancet fluke.
