Spiders beware!

Recommended Posts

Forget Star Wars and the battle between Jedi and the Empire, there was an epic fight outside our front door this morning.

 

Pretty sure the spider is a wee huntsman and at first it appeared to be some sort of stand off with the waspy fella dancing around it but no, it was paralysed. The wasp must have stung it and was taking a break from hauling it back to its nest. The spider was still twitching but incapable of defending itself, was awesome to watch.

the waspy fellow will take it back to nest inject its eggs inside the spider, then when waspies eggs hatch...they have something to eat from the beginning!

Reminds me of a battle I once saw of a green tree frog and very large, long stick insect

Who won do you think?...

After a large stand-off, the green tree frog literally grabbed the stick insect and gobbled it!
