Its the best picture I have right now, I think its a Bald Face hornet.

I really cant keep it for to much longer. Rents don't even know I have it. I'm worried how I will get it into a smaller container for shipping (If I find some one to ship too)

Cheers

Put it in the deep freeze for about 30 seconds to a minute to slow it down and then transfer it into a container.
