Scientists the Amazon rainforest have come a new wasp that could encourage Hollywood to make a horror movie. The newly-discovered insect has a huge stinger its tail that could inject a powerful and deadly sting any unfortunate victim. A scientist said the stinger "looks a fierce weapon". The stinger delivers a paralyzing venom that debilitates its victims. Once paralysis has set , the wasp lays eggs the victim's body. Researchers the University of Turku in Finland discovered the wasp. A professor biodiversity research said: "The stinger the new parasitoid not only long but also very wide, comparison to the size of the species."

The professor explained that parasitoid insects put larvae their host - usually another insect. Once the larvae grow, they eat the insect the inside . Researchers believe the unfortunate victim this new wasp is likely to be a spider, although they need to undertake further research to ascertain exactly which species spiders might fall prey to the wasp's stinger. The professor explained that: "The giant stinger the current species is very likely a highly sophisticated tool as well. Unfortunately, we can only guess its other purposes." He added: "Beautiful and exciting species strange habits catch people’s attention and highlight the importance maintaining vulnerable ecosystems."
