Asian Giant Hornets (4) v Titan Beetle

Asian Giant Hornets (4) - Vespa mandarinia
The Asian giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia), including the subspecies Japanese giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia japonica), colloquially known as the yak-killer hornet, is the world's largest hornet, native to temperate and tropical Eastern Asia. Its body length is approximately 50 mm (2 in), its wingspan about 76 mm (3 in), and it has a 6 mm (0.2 in) sting which injects a large amount of potent venom. The head of the hornet is orange and quite wide in comparison to other hornet species. The compound eyes and ocelli are dark brown, and the antennae are dark brown with orange scapes. The clypeus (the shield-like plate on the front of the head) is orange and coarsely punctured; the posterior side of the clypeus has narrow, rounded lobes. The mandible is large and orange with a black tooth (inner biting surface) which is used for burrowing. The Asian giant hornet is a relentless hunter that preys on other large insects, such as bees, other hornet species, and mantises.

Titan Beetle - Titanus giganteus
The Titan beetle (Titanus giganteus) is the second-longest known beetle in the Amazon rainforest and one of the longest beetle species in the world. It is from the family Cerambycidae (longhorn beetles). The titan beetle is the only member of its own genus. It is known from the rain forests of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, the Guianas, and north-central Brazil, where it is most commonly collected by the use of mercury-vapor lamps, to which the males are attracted. Adults can grow up to 6.5 inches (16.7 cm) in length. Of all known beetles, only the Hercules beetle Dynastes hercules, in which giant males occasionally can grow to 7 inches (over 17.5 cm) is longer than the Titan, but the Hercules beetle males have an enormous horn on the pronotum or thorax making up around half of its total length. As such, the body of the Titan beetle is considerably larger than that of the Hercules beetles. It is known that the short, curved and sharp mandibles can snap pencils in half and cut into human flesh.
