Panda Ant - Mutillidae are a family of more than species of wasps (despite the names) whose wingless females resemble large, hairy ants. Found in Chile, they are known for their extremely painful stings, hence the common name cow killer or cow ant.
Velvet ant species come in a distinct coloration known as aposematic coloration. They are usually blue, orange and white in color. These make them conspicuous to predators helping them avoid velvet ant stings.
