Nightmare Fuel: Wasp Versus Spider (FAIR WARNING: Is Just As Terrifying As It Sounds, Probably Even More So)

October 29, 2012


This is a video of a red wasp and some sort of spider GOING AT IT in a battle to the death. Who wins? Definitely not anybody who watches the video, I can tell you that. The wasp -- the wasp wins. It runs circles around the spider stabbing it in the head until it is DEAD. Bonus zombie leg twitch at 1:18. I'm never going outside again. Well, not after one final trip to the liquor store doused in Raid. "That's lighter fluid." *wink* I want off this planet.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Rhubarb, arguably my least favorite pie flavor.

  • The spider is not actually dead. The spider wasp drags the spider off to a secure location, such as a nest, and lays a single egg on top of it. The spider is paralysed by the toxins of the sting, but does not die. When the egg hatches, the infant wasp proceeds to feed upon the still living spider. A pretty horrible fate, one can say.

    This probably wasn't a fight to the death. Quite a few wasp species have been known to disable spiders and other potential hosts with their stings before laying eggs inside them. The eggs then hatch and eat the internal organs of their walking nursery as their first meal. I'm not f**king with you on this.

    It's a spider wasp:

    The spider is paralyzed and will be eaten alive by the wasp larvae.
    Nature gladly made the story even worse :D

    Did he died?

  • Turbosloth

    Moral of the story - don't fuck with wasps.

    not cool geekology
    i though this was a family friendly site
    you obviously promote interspecies rape

  • V Bullock

    It needs THIS music playing in the background.

  • Ezra Mills

    I can't believe I actually found myself feeling sorry for the spider!

  • Brian Fleshman

    needs this music in the background

  • Proof that wasps are dicks. Now if it were a bee that's fine, bees are good with the whole one sting thing they have going on but wasps are dicks...

  • Bakasaia

    I would have squashed the winner. Just to be a dick and chalk one up for humanity

  • stung In The FACE!!!

  • why are you doing this to us?

  • rebekahshurman

    I was all like 'This video can;t be as scary as it sounds'... I couldn't watch past ten seconds. Spiders are just so gross.

  • oranberry

    Aww, I was cheering for the spider


  • James Mcelroy

    Oh GW, the spider probably wasn't dead, just paralyzed so that the wasp larvae could eat it alive later. (you know if it's in this wasp family )
