Flush it Friday: Ovipositor Appreciation


When I picked up Endless Forms by Seirian Sumner, I knew I was getting into some twisted shid, as I’m familiar with some of the life strategies of wasps. Along with hyperparasitism and being able to hunt prey many times their size, some wasps (for example, the ichneumon wasps) have an absurdly long ovipositor used to lay eggs either under tree bark, or on/inside paralyzed prey. It’s a grim prognosis for the paralyzed—perhaps a week or two of being eaten alive from the inside. Be thankful though, the wasp larvae keep the essential organs running so their food doesn’t rot prematurely. Bone apple tea!
