(WBIR) Also known as a Red-footed Cannibalfly, it’s a type of robber fly and is a notoriously aggressive insect hunter. They like to hide out and wait for a bee or wasp to fly by before launching at it and stabbing it with its proboscis. They then inject the prey with a saliva cocktail that immobilizes it and liquefies its innards so it can suck out a nice meal.
