A Giant Scoliid Wasp (Megascolia procer) in a 10x 10" frame.

 

A large tropical parasitic wasp, this species is a parasitoid of the Atlas beetle. The wasp paralyzes a beetle grub with its sting, then lays an egg on it and buries it in an underground cell. When the wasp larva hatches, it consumes its still-living host before pupating inside its remains - hardcore. It is also one of the largest wasps in the world by wingspan. The females tend to be bigger than the males - both sexes are available.

 

This wasp is found on the islands of Sumatra & Java.
