I've thought for a long time that the virus theory was flawed, the real threat will be a mutated parasite. Personally I think it will be a mutated strain of sacculina carcini http://www.neatorama.com/2006/08/21/six ... parasites/ 3rd on down. There will be a terrible accident when the government starts to to experiment with crab DNA and serial killers to bio-engineer super soldiers that can re-generate limbs.

I'm not worried. The cure for zombie ants is the same cure for normal ants...
