A wasp, Polybia rejecta, attacking red-eyed treefrog, Agalychnis callidryas, eggs. The eggs are 5 [...]days old, in the middle of their period of hatching competence but still premature. Undisturbed eggs typically hatch at 6 or 7 days. The first attack was 5 min ago, 5 embryos have already hatched & 2 have been carried away when this clip starts. It is in real time.
