Well, caterpillars can become pregnant with wasp larvae and cocoons.

Female wasps, normally of the family Ichneumonidae, lay their eggs inside the caterpillars and the larvae eat the caterpillar from the inside out. They then burrow out of the caterpillars skin and spin their cocoons on it's back. (the white ovals).

The image to your left is a parasitized Manduca sexta larvae.

Those things grow into this monstrosity.

The habit at my elementary school was to collect, pile, and mass squish dozens of the dead bodies of these once mating season was over and they died by the hundreds.

"Recently, physicians have discovered that venom extractor syringes can remove larvae with ease at any stage of growth. As these devices are a common component of first-aid kits to deal with snakebites, this is an effective and easily accessible solution."

Arse dagger.....   
   
Still, I think those.....one kinda wasps that are called dirt dobbers locally are cool. You can keep them as pets.

Pretty sure they're just one of those insects that mimics the dangerous ones as protection. They are interesting though. It's always fun to see one fly at you and that moment of terror before you realize that it isn't a wasp.

We call them mud dobbers in South Florida, and yeah they're cool. No stingers. Just ******* huge.
