>Donna Lockman z 7 NC, USA
A tarantula hawk is an incondecent black wasp that wrestles and stuns tarantulas then lays her egg on the tarantula and buries it back in its hole. The babies hatch and feed on the tarantula. I've also seen them wrestling with grubs and other beatle larvis so maybe she uses them for a host for her babies, too. I don't know that for sure. They're interesting to watch and I've never had one bother me in the yard so they get to stay.
