A new insect has been discovered in Indonesia, and it looks like something you would see only in your worst nightmare. It's a new species of wasp found last year by entomologist Lynn Kimsey, a professor at the University of California at Davis. This week, Kimsey formally published her findings on the bug, dubbed "the Komodo dragon of wasps" because of its tremendous size and ferocious appearance.

Pfffft! I have literally seen bigger ones up on Long Island, New York.
What a disappointment, John!
The giant cat-sized rats in the Florida keys were more entertaining!
