I’ve always wanted to see what one of those giant Asian hornets looked like up close, but all I was able to find on the internet was a “tiger wasp”.

I’m not sure if it’s the exact same family, but it’s a close enough analog size-wise to give you goosebumps when you hold it.

it’s encased in some kind of lightweight Lucite, and you can study it really close up and see it’s huge jaws and piercing eyes with astonishing clarity.

It’s just awesomely horrifying.

That right there is what I like to call a Nightmare Insect
