Australian spider gobbled up a whole possum: predatory nature

Spiders are incredibly gluttonous creatures. In a year, spiders eat more food than all of humanity. Therefore, it is not surprising that especially large species prey on fish, birds, and even vertebrates. Adam Lutton was lucky to get a couple of rare shots of such hunting at a ski base in Mount Field National Park in Tasmania.

Tasmanian possums weigh less than a golf ball and grow only 11 centimeters long, not counting the tail. But hunter spiders can reach much larger sizes, so the tiny animal, we can assume, was doomed to become a dinner.
