Spider kills snake
Soyeun Choi stashed this in Nature
Wow. Remember when spiders were the scariest things on the internet? (As opposed to the world news this week.)
That's a pretty tiny snake. Let's see the spider take out a Python and then I'll be nervous.
As long as they don't get organized . . .
But spiders killing snakes is definitely a thing:
You've just described the stuff of most peoples' nightmares.
Freaking creepy! The snake looks like a venomous coral snake, but it is a scarlet king snake or a scarlet snake.
Do you know what kind of spider killed it?
Yeah! Not only did a spider get a snake for take out, it's not bothered one bit by the human filming it.
As for spiders that kill snakes, there are -- gulp -- more than one.
I feel ill. Also, we need steadier camera operators. I want to know how that vignette ended.
