Snake-eating spider

Cairns, Australia man Ant Hadleigh snapped this golden orb spider attempting to eat a brown tree snake in his Freshwater backyard. He estimated the tree snake to be around half a metre long and was alive for “an hour or more” after being caught in the spider’s web, before finally succumbing to the crafty arachnid’s venom.
