Holy Crap!!!

Mark gets a no-prize that looks suspiciously like the ones Lisa R. gets for bringing us this report of an Australian spider caught eating a bird. Apparently it's a video, but I got such huge heebie-jeebies from the picture I didn't have the guts to find the film. YEESH!!!

eMail this entry!

Here's some info on the spider in question. Apparently the little buggers are all over world.

In fact, here's another fun pic of one.

The bird that's being nom nom nommed? A chestnut-breasted mannikin.

My sister and brother-in-law are visiting Australia in February.

I think I won't mention this whole episode to them...

I have seen a ton of these golden orbs in my yard, not that big or impressive. The spider I am waiting to see is this one in this link. They are harmless but dear GOD!!!
