Tarantula Hawk

Hi Peter,
The Tarantula Hawk is a large wasp that preys upon Tarantulas.  The are much more impressive alive than they are dead.  The sting of a female Tarantula Hawk is reported to be quite painful, however, they are not aggressive towards people, but they will sting if provoked or carelessly handled.
