In the middle of the track in drizzly weather. Shifted it off the track so it wouldn't get crushed. Live animal, partway out of shell when I found it.

Roughly 2.5‒3 cm diameter.

Description

This angry hate-filled critter was writhing on my kitchen floor this morning. It is a bit larger than ye ol' average wasp (scale is in mm).

On our property I've poisoned a few underground wasp nests over the last couple of weeks - I've never seen so many around.
