In stock



Behold; one of Mother Nature's most beautiful and deadly creations.Ichneumon wasp species are highly diverse - ranging from 3 mm (1/8-inch) to 13 cm (5 inches) long. Most are slender, with the females of many species (particularly in the genus Megarhyssa) having an extremely long ovipositor for laying eggs. The female finds a host and lays an egg on, near, or inside the host's body. Upon hatching, the larval ichneumon feeds either externally or internally, killing the host when they themselves are ready to pupate.Despite looking formidable, the ovipositor does not deliver a sting like many wasps or bees. It can be used by the wasps to bore into and lay eggs inside rotten wood.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------'Fatal Beauty' is an original antique natural history lithograph illustration from 1907 and it's in beautiful condition.
