Meet The Panda Ant (Yes That’s Right, It Looks Like A Panda Bear)

This fascinating little creature has been given the nickname “Panda Ant” because of its coloration resembling that of the Giant Panda. However, the Panda Ant isn’t actually an ant at all – it is a wingless wasp that bears a strong resemblance to a hairy ant.

The species is more generally referred to as Velvet Ants and can be found in various colors, but only the black and white ones are called Panda Ants, for obvious reasons. Though they are cute little guys, if you come across one in person watch out because they are known for their extremely painful stings.
