Figs

Most of us have eaten figs, in large part due to the popularity of a certain cookie, so what is so strange about them? How about the fact that they digest wasps? According to the U.S. Forest Service, a number of figs are pollinated by wasps that are born and die within fig fruit. The males live out the entirety of their short lives in one fig, the female wasps fly to another tree deposit eggs, and die inside that fig. Fortunately, howstuffworks.com reports that the wasps are actually digested by the plant, broken down by an enzyme the fig secretes.
