Description: Stunning Set of the Worlds largest Wasp & Hornet.
This is the worlds largest hornet and it is extremely aggressive. This infamous Vespa Mandarinia japonica hornet is known as the yak-killer hornet in Japan. The venom from this insect is extremely potent and has caused many human deaths in Japan. Due to it’s large size it can carry a lot of venom. The venom is especially potent and contains an enzyme so strong that it can dissolve human tissue. Like all hornets this species has a barb less stinger, allowing it to sting repeatedly. These giant hornets are very hard to get. This hornet has a wingspan of over 2 1/2″+
The gigantic female wasp has orange and black markings with large false eyes and a unique and odd orange alien like marking on her mandibles. This is the worlds largest wasp and she has a wingspan of over 3 1/2″+
