The giant hornet from Japan lurks in East Asia's countryside. I know that sounds gross but it's pretty scary too.
The giant hornet grows to about 55 millimetres ( about the size of a adult human's little finger) and has a massive 6 millimeter sting, which carries strong venom that can kill allergic humans. As I've heard, the sting is like having a red hot nail being driven into your skin. OUCH!
This horrible hornet has a hobby of raiding honey bee hives and killing most of the bees inside by chopping their heads off with their powerful jaws.
