World's largest bee rediscovered in Indonesian islands, that went missing for 38 years

Wallace giant bee, the world's largest bee with a size of a human thumb, jaws like a stag beetle & 4 times larger than a honeybee. It went missing for 38 long years & was feared to be extinct until a team of biologists rediscovered it on the islands of North Moluccas. A single female bee was found living inside a termite's nest. As their habitat is threatened, this rediscovery has raised the hopes of finding more species.
