Laying only a single egg, the spider wasp has a brutal method to ensure its young have a high chance of survival. With a striking red thorax, the spider wasp gains its name from paralysing arachnids with its large stinger. The spider is then dragged into the wasp’s nest, where it will lay one egg into the still-alive abdomen of the spider, which will act as a ‘host’ to the young. The wasp larvae will then feed on the inside of the spider, till it breaks free as an adult wasp.
