Australian Red Back Spider Caught Lizard
A Redback spider having caught a lizard, Rockingham, Western Australia. The lizard was still alive at the time. An Australian Red Back spider with a small lizard it has trapped and bitten. It is called the Redback spider, and this creature loves to live in dark and dusty places such as underneath dunny seats.
It is very unlikely you will find one in your house unless you do not house clean regularly and remove spider webs from dark or little-used corners of the rooms. The bite of a Redback spider will make you feel ill for several days but, even without treatment, it is not likely to kill anyone unless they happen to be very weak; or if they are a young child or a frail old person.
Spider Feeding Green Tree Frog
Night falls as a black and yellow garden spider feeds on a small Pacific tree frog in its web strung in a blackberry thicket along a seasonal creek near Roseburg.
Black and yellow garden spiders mostly feed on insects, but are also know to feed on small lizards and amphibians when available. I feel sorry for the frog, but a spider has got to eat.
Spider Catches Snake
If you suffer from arachnophobia, you might want to steer clear of applying for a job with this South African company.For the spiders here are so tough they wolf down snakes for breakfast.
An office receptionist was met with this horrifying sight when she arrived for work. Astonishingly the snake was off the ground and tangled in the web. And the spider was making short work of tucking in to possibly its biggest meal ever.
Witnesses say the spider spend two days weaving a web around its kill lifting it higher off the ground and continually snacking on it. At one point the spider reacted aggressively to a fly that accidentally landed on the web, chasing it away from its kill.
Bird Caught in Web Spider Approaching
A large spider found throughout coastal and inland Australia, especially Western Australia. Body length of females up to 40mm, males much smaller, about 7mm. Overall greyish with silvery cephalothorax and black brushes on the legs. Little or no yellow on the legs unlike the very similar Nephila plumipes which also has a raised yellow sternum.
The female constructs a large, persistent web with strong strands of golden silk strung between tree branches or other structures. The strong web can trap large prey, sometimes even small birds. Small males tend to occupy the edge of the female's web, sometimes more than one. Rather timid, the female normally flees to the top of the web when alarmed, sometimes it shakes the web in defence when disturbed. There are often strings of spent food parcels or food caches in the web.
Queen Wasp and Spider
Was a real shock seeing a spider taking on a wasp that had flown into its web. I always assumed that wasps were pretty much the meanest, hardest creepy crawlies, but this one was no match for the spider. At this stage the wasp hadn't long flown into the web and was making an effort to get away.
The wasp had given up and the spider was preparing it for storage - quite a difficult shot to get as they were swinging around in the wind. And here's the last shot, taken just before the spider dragged his new food parcel into the undergrowth.
Mouse Caught in Spider Web
Watch out for spiders in Ohio! This spider has what looks like, a small gray House Mouse caught in its web. It was not possible to identify the spider at the time this photograph was taken.
There are probably some more plausible explainations how this mouse managed to get caught in this web rather than the spider catching and attacking the mouse.
