There exists a species of fungus, Ophicordyceps unilateralis,  which grows into canopy-dwelling ants in Brazil and Thailand and modifies their behavior to drop to the forest floor, crawl up a plant to the optimal height for the fungus to reproduce, bite into the underside of a leaf such that their jaws lock in and the grip persists through death, and then wait to die.  The fungus then grows a long stalk out of the back of the ant's head and releases its spores.
