Red Velvet Ant

This red furry guy was in our yard this week.   I did some research and found out he is a Red Velvet Ant.  No, not sweet like Red Velvet Cake, but mean like a wasp!  That's right, this is type of wasp, and he is sometimes called a Cow Killer because of his bad sting.  

Mom, thanks for the Big World Report, but I don't want to be friends with this guy.

He does look interesting. Mom would probably take him away from me like she does the snakes.
Can we be friends?

PS: from Mom. Rexy doesn't have an identity on Google so he's using mine. The opinions are his.

We would not like him either if he has bad stings :o
We are way smaller than cows!

Sounds like a nasty little wasp. Their coloring is just beautiful but there not sweet like red velvet cake like you said. Thanks for the share. Have a great day.
