Only In Australia: Spider Catches Snake In Web During Epic Showdown (Video)

Australia, home of the world's most terrifying creatures, topped itself once again.

A video filmed by farmer Neale Postlethwaite reportedly shows the web of a redback spider found underneath one of his vehicles in Gooroc.

Astonishingly, the creepy-crawly insect managed to hoist the length of a still-living eastern brown snake into its sticky lair.

The venomous snake didn't die until the next day.

In an interview with Daily Mail, Postlethwaite joked,

My wife doesn't want to drive her car until she can get an underbody car wash.

She has a point. See if you can watch this spider and its prey without feeling shivers down your spine.
