So, You're Afraid of Spiders?
This lucky little guy has been paralyzed and is about to be drug down a hole to have a wasp egg implanted in him that will hatch and feed on his still-living body until only his heart and central nervous system remain. You don't know what fear is.
There are over 5,000 species of spider wasp, and they are found all over the world. While adults will just kill spiders to eat, mothers need the spiders to remain alive to incubate and then feed her young upon their hatching.
The spiders don’t just give up without a fight!
