cristonamo : @warpedwhore They hunt TARANTULAS. then paralyze them, then lay eggs inside the spider WHILE ITS STILL ALIVE. And the babies eat it from within. And to top it off they're mean motherfuckers and don't take no shit they have the most painful sting in North America and Mexico and they all live HERE IN NEW MEXICO.
j_smelser : Yeah F those things. @smelser53
arexbear87 : An angel of death has fallen
jcwaugh22 : they are so strong they don't squish.. they just keep on going. Tried stomping one and it wasn't even effective
m_jones56 : NOPE.
ironedge : I saw one dragging a dead tarantula the other day. Horrific.

➕Tarantula hawk wasp. A kick ass bug and pretty much the meanest chick on the ground. The female #spider #wasp hunts #tarantulas in order to start her morbid ritual of procreation. She injects her prey with a paralyzingly venom then drags and stuffs the helpless #tarantula into a burrow and lays a single egg onto the spider. Several days later, when the larva has hatched, it chews its way into the still living spider and feeds on it avoiding vital organs for as long as possible. Approximately 30 days later, the spider succumbs to the young wasp and the new wasp metamorphoses into an a new member of the wasp society. The wasp has the most painful bug sting in North America and Mexico. This wasp is the official insect of New Mexico...hmm. #tarantulahawkwasp #death #insects #bugs #venom #entomology #killer➕

This huge Tarantula Hawk Wasp was perhaps the coolest critter I saw today at @desertbotanical! Really interesting story if you Google them, but in short, the prey on tarantulas by wrestling them to the ground, then stinging them, causing paralysis. #az365 #myphx #Phx #Phoenix #Arizona #instagramaz #arizonahighways #desert #wasp

lajphotos : @datura_datura Thx. In hindsight, and after googling, I'm wondering if I should've been scared... :o
datura_datura : Nah, I'm always up in their business...
rszzz : Horrifying.
lajphotos : @rszzz Nah, he was cute. Poor gigantic iridescent wasp, so misunderstood.... :'(
lajphotos : @shunthesun #tarantulahawkwasp
shunthesun : Oh crap! Can they attack humans! I was probably really annoying (and close) 😱
lajphotos : @shunthesun No, they're apparently not interested in humans, just don't get caught out in yer tarantula suit! :p
shunthesun : I'll have to keep that in mind next time I wear it! 😂😂

The stinger of a female Pepsis grossa can be up to 7 mm (1/3 in) long, and the sting is considered the second most painful insect sting in the world. If I had known this I would have run away.

kerrei01 : @cali_nature1 OMG. Sebastian and I looked on the Internet and we read about this insect. The sting is so painful, incredible. We looked at the Schmidt sting pain index. It is a scale that describes the pain. What we read sounds terrible. You are right. It is better to run away. Lol
cali_nature1 : @kerrei01 I didnt know until after we got home- I looked it up also. I had never seen one before and I just thought it looked pretty. :O
sharifwrites : scary *shivers*
cali_nature1 : Luckily I had never seen one before. Hopefully I never see it again :) @sharifwrites
