Tarantula Hawk (Pepsis Formosa)
-
The Tarantula is NOT dead... It is paralyzed, and soon to be eaten alive.

From Wikipedia: [The female wasps] capture, sting, and paralyze the spider, then they either drag the spider back into her own burrow or transport their prey to a specially prepared nest where a single egg is laid on the spider's body, and the entrance is covered. The wasp larva, upon hatching, begins to suck the juices from the still-living spider. After the larva grows a bit, it plunges into the spider's body and feeds voraciously, avoiding vital organs for as long as possible to keep it fresh.

Creepy!
