Every once in awhile, nature shows us that anything is possible.
Today, I witnessed a first, as I saw an image of a daddy long leg that had killed a large snake.
As far as how the daddy-long-legs overcame the snake in the first place is another subject altogether.
The Australian Museum’s arachnology collections manager Graham Milledge said while it was not clear exactly how the snake had died, it was quite possible the spider was responsible.
“The most likely scenario is that the snake got entangled in the spider’s web. Usually what happens then is the spider will try to wrap the snake and then they’ll bite it,” Mr Milledge said.
Not everyday we see a spider takedown a snake.
