Been following up a few connections after my post about Latrodectus hasselti , the Redback.
Here's a video (ignore the first 30 seconds about stingrays, or as we now call them "Irwin-Killing Bastardfish" )
Also those photos of a Latrodectus catching and eating a snake. Thankyou, wirrrn. This is actually fairly common - I rescued a dugite from a spider web myself, and luckily wasn't bitten by either, unlike the woman who got bitten by both. Dugites, or False Cobras, are potentially deadly Western Australian snakes and ungrateful swine.
( Spider vs. Snake, and Film Star Spider as bonusCollapse )
