I was cleaning up some old rotten wood behind my house and THIS crawled out. Scared the poop out of me. I looked it up on the internet - it's a Red Velvet Ant also known as a Cow Killer. I'm not comfortable with something living where I walk barefoot that is capable of killing a cow. It's actually a wasp. And the females, like the one I found, CAN sting.
Reminder to self: set back yard on fire.
There's just so much I need to warn you about - And yet, tragically, I cannot.
