Interesting Animal - Hornets

According to China News Agency attacks by hornets in northern China have killed 41 people since July.

(A combination of rapid urbanisation and climate change seem to contributing to the problem. More than 1,600 people have also been injured by stings in Shaanxi province, but the hornets behind the deadly attacks this summer appear to be the Asian giant hornet, or Vespa mandarinia. 

Scarily, they can grow up to 5cm long and have a 6mm sting.)
