Sometimes we come across some unusual sights during our travels—not all of them pretty.
This is a dead moth we saw in Manuel San Antonio National Park, on Costa Rica's Pacific coast. Our guide explained the moth was infected by a fungus that killed it. The fungus used the moth's body as a culture medium. The white growth we see on the moth's body is an overgrowth of the fungus, which then releases spores into the environment, and the process repeats itself with a different host in the future.
