The largest bee in the world is a large, black axis, like an insect, until the thumb of an adult man, and she was extinct – or so, the scientists thought. Bulkwere re-found alive in Indonesia last month, a decade after it was first seen.
The Wallace giant bee was named after the discoverer of Alfred Russell Wallace, who found massive species in 1958. In January 2019, the group restored Wallace steps and traveled to Indonesia to find out if they could find a bee. Their long campaign paid off.
A natural historic and security photographer, Clay Bolt, described the global search for the Global Wildlife Conservation Team. On the last day of their expedition, everyone in the team fell ill, but they insisted and eventually faced with what they considered the nest of bees. Bolt called him "the most wonderful thing I've ever seen."
"I simply could not believe it," he wrote. – We found the giant Wallace bee. Having made a dance of victory, Bolt photographed and took off the bee. "My goal was to be the first person to make a photo of Wallace's giant bee, and I have achieved this goal."
The recently torn giant Wallace Bee, also called "Raja of", or the king of bees, has gained massive attention from the media. Alive Science called it "wallet bee". Little is known about insects that have a dark body length of about 1.5 inches – four times more than European.
Bees build joint nests on termite housing, researcher Adam Messer watched in the 1980's. Messer was the last scientist who documented super bees in the wild, according to Live Science. Bolt and one of his teammates, entomologist Eli Wyman, returned to the United States after the opening and hoped to work with researchers and conservation groups in Indonesia to provide protection for giant bees.
Although the giant bee may seem awful, Bolt said, "Just knowing that the giant wings of this bee break through this ancient Indonesian forest helps me feel that there are so many losses in the worldhope and miracle are still exist. "
