Barbed War Wasp
Barbed War Wasps, a member of the War Wasp family, have a green exoskeleton and prefer to attack prey from afar. They can launch their powerful stingers a distance of up to 20 meters. The stinger tips, filled with a potent acidic compound, regrow mere seconds after ejection, presumably without limit.
