High Drama as Tarantula Hawk Wasp drags a tarantula to its doom.

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

This Tarantula Hawk Wasp is a pepsid wasp that will lay a single egg in the tarantula which will then hatch in the still living body and fully develop therein.

These wasps are common here at Mount Totumas and both visiting entomologists and the locals have mentioned its life cycle. This is the first time we got to witness this pepsid wasp doing its thing!
