Wasp VS.Tarantula
Show Down!!!
Spider sensing is antagonist movement upon it
Tries to make one last effort in attemptive escape
As the wasp clamps it jaws and uses it wings to position and tap the tarantula
The wasp when trying to figure out what will be her choice species of spider she will use her antenae to basically molest the tarantula
she uses her antennae to check certain characteristics an/or tolerances that the spider migh have
wasp will not attack the wrong species
After her slection of prey , the wasp leaves to dig gave site,once done she returns to claim her prey.
Wasp uses antennae to feel up and down the tarantula
Tarantula,feeling it's being touched so inappropriately that it stands all legs, like "stilts" as Petrunkevitch said.
But, sadly the wasp wins the battle of survivor.
Tarantula is dragged to the grave site dug previously by the wasp
Wasp attaches her eggs by her own form of secretion
Then, buries the spider and nothing is left of the spider but the bony skeleton.
The Battle is Done
