This drawing is about Dicrocoelium dendriticum, a parastic fluke that lives inside sheep, snails, ants, and sheep again (in that order.) The fluke manipulates both the physiology and the behavior of its hosts tomake sure it's able to travel to its next host. In ants, it forces its host to climb to the top of a blade of grass and lock on with its pincers. It only does this at night when the ant host (and therefore the parasite) are safe from the sun's harsh rays...and in the perfect position to be eaten by a grazing sheep.
