Tarantula Hawk Wasp Preys on Its Next Victim, the Tarantula

The tarantula-hunting hawk wasp spotted its next victim, a tarantula, in the Santa Monica Mountains, and brought it back to its cave.According to the uploader Hamish, once immobilizing the tarantula, the wasp would carry the arachnid back to its cave where it would lay an egg on the tarantula for its young to hatch and eat! Hamish managed to capture the intense reality of nature on camera, while narrating the extraordinary sight before him. Credit: hamishpatterson family via Storyful
