Chrissy Teigen may be the queen of the jungle.
There's a video currently making the rounds on Twitter showing Chrissy Teigen and her daughter, Luna, playing with a bug that casually wanted to make friends with them. While most bugs are harmless, Teigen wished that this scary-looking creature was a happy little bug that wouldn't sting. It turned out to be a good thing that the monster didn't bite either because the bug that 2-year-old Luna and Chrissy were admiring turns out to be a pretty deadly creature.
John Legend can be heard giggling in the background while Chrissy encourages her daughter to get up close to the bug. Asking, "is he a nice bug," Luna enthusiastically replied that yes, he is a nice bug. It turns out that Chrissy was holding a Tarantula Hawk Wasp as pointed out by a few experts on social media. While entomologists have yet to confirm that it is indeed a Tarantula Hawk, many on Twitter are noting the resemblance. When stung by the wasp, your arm can go into a state of paralysis and, apparently, they have an incredibly painful sting. The Huffington Post reports that the Tarantula Hawk dishes out "the most painful wasp sting in the world" so it's pretty fortunate that Chrissy and Luna fell upon a friendly one.
Stating that she's now become friends with the bug, Teigen can thank her lucky stars that she wasn't attacked by the creature. Check out her thread of tweets, including the video, below.
