Deer wasps are a giant wasp native to Das. They are a species of emerald cockroach wasp that has adapted to life on the Das islands. They are much, much bigger than their cockroach-hunting cousins and hunt Das’ megafauna— most commonly deer. … And when other animals are unavailable, they have no qualms about using Sentient settlers to lay their eggs.


Deer wasps are a giant wasp native to Das. They are a species of emerald cockroach wasp that has adapted to life on the Das islands. They are much, much bigger than their cockroach-hunting cousins and hunt Das’ megafauna— most commonly deer. … And when other animals are unavailable, they have no qualms about using Sentient settlers to lay their eggs. They are about three times the size of a fully grown dassen man and have a venom-filled stinger that they use to paralyse their prey before carrying it off to a secluded burrow in order to reproduce. They will lay a single egg, which is about the size of a balled fist, inside their prey using an ovipositor disguised as a secondary stinger. Unlike many other parasitoid wasps they do not lay externally, and instead puncture the skin to deposit their eggs.
