A Dementor is a non-being and dark creature, considered one of the foulest to inhabit the world. Dementors feed upon human happiness, and thus cause depression and despair to anyone near them. They can also consume a person's soul, leaving their victims in a permanent vegetative state, and thus are often referred to as "soul-sucking fiends" and are known to leave a person as an "empty-shell".
Recently, scientists have discovered a new species of wasp which turns its victims into zombies, is a species of cockroach wasp native to Thailand, described in 2014 by Michael Ohl in Berlin, Germany. The species name was selected by visitors to the museum, in efforts to connect members of the public to issues of taxonomy and the description of biodiversity.
It is a particularly scary creature, preying on unlucky cockroaches using a creepy mind control technique. The wasp injects venom into the unlucky 'roaches, effectively removing their free will and then leading the victims off to be eaten.
Some three species are being found in the Mekong every single week, with a total of 2,216 discovered over the past 17 years.
Ampulex dementor is colored in red and black. Its mandibles, posterolateral areas are all light red, while its abdomen and much of its head is black. Its wings are slightly yellow. It has long and slender legs, female length varies between 9.6 and 10.9 mm; the male length is unknown.
