This massive bee was recently found in the Indonesian jungle. According to the latest buzz, the last sighting of this species of huge insect (by bee standards anyway) was 38 years ago. DW reports that the bee is on the top 25 “most wanted” species list held by Global Wildlife Conservation. This honey of a bee measures an amazing 3.8 cm (1.5 in) in length. While it looks scary, the bee loves pollen and nectar, just like its smaller cousins, and won’t hurt you if you leave it alone!
