Imo one of the most terrifying parasites... Think about it, it infects the nervous system of the caterpillar and then bursts out of its head once it makes its way to the soil below the surface... Imagine if this fungus could infect other creatures

I find Chinese medicines pretty disgusting. They just hunt and harvest weird stuffs that their Emperors of the past were using and assume that they somehow can cure stuffs. Sharks fins, rhinos horns, bears' bale Juice, these weird bugs, sea cucumbers, bird's nests, weird mushrooms, etc. They are all assumption, more like placebos for their mind.
