The NasiraxEdit

Oripedia, otherwise known as the Nasirax, is an insect of the Pheloditic phylum of the Animalia kingdom. It originates from the deserts of North Africa. The name “Nasirax” originates from the Tabu people. In the Tabuian language, “Nas” means to “murder” or “kill.” The Tabu people used the Nasirax’s poisonous venom to kill members of their tribe in human sacrifice rituals. It has eight legs, antennae, wings, and an outer shell. The Nasirax is bright blue in color and also has purple dots covering its outer shell. The Nasirax has a diet that includes decomposed bugs. Nasiraxes live in nests of trees or bushes and create these nests through a sticky substance produced by their legs. Scientists approximate that 1,000 to 5,000 Nasiraxes can live in a single nest.

In 2009, it was noted to have caused the most reported human deaths of 238,492, next to the Sonoma Lita (black widow spider). As its wings flap, they naturally release poisonous vaporized venom that can be fatal to humans. The venom is invisible to the human eye and enters the bloodstream orally or nasally. Scientists have identified the compound in the venom as methlyndoximedtrapazone, which ceases cell reproduction in the human body. One to three days after exposure to the venom, people typically experience flu-like symptoms such as high fever, nausea, fatigue, and vomiting. These symptoms can last up to two weeks. After two weeks, vital organs in the body begin to shut down because the venom begins to spread throughout the entire body. Today, there is no scientifically known cure for the Nasirax’s venom.
