Here's something for those of you who are afraid of snakes and spiders: a dramatic photo gallery at The Cairns Post of a redback spider eating a snake!
The email accompanying the images claims a receptionist at an electrical firm came in to work on Tuesday to find the snake caught up in the web. It is believed the snake got caught in the web on Monday night.
Throughout Tuesday, the spider checked on her prey, but on Wednesday she rolled it up and started spinning a web around it. She also kept lifting it higher off the ground, while continually snacking on it.
