Spiders - there's nothing more horrifying than these eight-legged monsters, and clipping of them having their way with their prey only seem to fuel the nightmares about them. And as if spiders and their long pointy legs aren't already creepy and terrifying, people have gone to extremes in capturing photos of these creatures while they dine on victims larger than their size - taking arachnophobia to a whole new level.
Spiders' meals don't simply involve larger preys, but also other predators like snakes, scorpions and sorts aren't exactly 'safe' from these demonic bugs. These disturbing pictures prove that spiders are skilled hunters that are nearly as fearless as we are afraid of them. They could be lurking around any corner, ready to surprise you with their deadly fangs and spindly legs.
This spider turned green while eating a caterpillar's innards.
Orb Weaver spiders make a fresh web every morning and tear it down in the evening. It's neat to watch that spider 'swallow.'
Spiders don't have teeth, that forces it on a strict liquid diet. But that doesn't make it switch to healthy juices and smoothies. Instead, they have a built-in venom that essentially liquefies their prey, so that they could enjoy their sips of victory.
What was the scorpion doing up there in the first place?
The scariest part is that this battle is happening in/around a household.
Clearly, people were not meant to settle on the Australian continent. Take the hint, humans!
Most of these images, if not all, are taken from Australia.
Golden Orb Weaver spider span the length of your face. People have used their webbing as fishing nets and here's one eating a bat.
Certainly the bird paid the price of staying too long on the 'web'.
This is how they get their taste for human blood - until they become powerful enough to strike us.
Seriously, the more I get to know about them, they scarier they get.
Goddamn spider eating a damn fish. As if the rest of the images weren't enough. Thanks for telling me that even waters are not safe from the stalky legs and venomous clasp of a spider.
I have no idea - Should I thank the spider taking the snake down? Or should I run for my life?
I'll never get used to seeing invertebrates eating vertebrates. It seems like there is NO superior race.
This horror comes from Thailand, where a traveler visited a hotel room, only to find a spider welcoming him like this.
