Some call me a creepy critter
some call me a cow killer
I’m really known as the red velvet ant
but I’m actually a wasp, now isn’t that a thriller?
Halloween can stir up some creepy characters and creepy critters, sending goosebumps up and down our spine. Sometimes the creepiness is a common occurrence, not needing a special occasion to take its creepiness to another level.
The reputation of the wingless female Red Velvet Ant’s sting is so potent and painful, it is said that it could kill a cow. Red velvet male ants have no stingers but do have wings. Although they are not deadly to humans, you should still be cautious around them or you may feel like a dying cow!
