Australia, home of everything completely horrifying about the natural world. That’s where we gonna find the snake eating spider!
A Golden silk orb-weaver spider can grow up to 5-6.9 cm in body length, not counting the span of its legs. They spin strong yellow webs that are very large and can reach a meter in diameter. A large, strong web can mean only one thing: large, strong prey. These spiders don’t waste their time with the smallest insects and have been known to feed on birds and snakes. Yes, birds and snakes!
So here’s a golden silk spider having a nice meal. A half a meter brown tree snake.
