By hijacking a spider’s nervous system, a wasp larva can manipulate the spider into making a stronger web, according to a study published in The Journal of Experimental Biology ---> http://jeb.biologists.org/content/218/15/2326 . Together, the wasp and the spider provide a perfect example of host manipulation — an ecological process in which one species (the parasite) and its young (the parasitoids) manipulate the behaviors of another species (the host) to their advantage (@venommovie in real life😲😅).
