World’s Largest Bee – As Big As a Human Thumb -Spotted for the First Time Since 1981
The Wallace's giant bee is as big as a human thumb. That might be frightening to most people, but scientists were delighted when a team of researchers recently found it in Indonesia. It's the largest bee in the world, and scientists feared it might be extinct -- until now. A group of researchers made a stunning "rediscovery" of the elusive critter and took the first photos and video of a living Wallace's giant bee on January 25.
