Japanese Giant Hornets

The Japanese Giant Hornet is fairly small, and about the size of a thumb. You shouldn’t minimize this little guy because he releases awfully powerful poison in its victim. The toxin also incites the others to assault the unfortunate victim. About fifty people a year die from this hornet’s toxin. This hornet only attacks if it thinks it is being threatened.
