Chinese House Spider Catches Snake In Its Web
<snip>

BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese house spider sitting on its web waiting for lunch got the biggest helping of its life -- it caught a snake.

The 12-inch snake crawled into a farmer's house in Qingyuan county in eastern Zhejiang province, apparently oblivious of the spider patiently spinning its web in the corner, Xinhua news agency said on Saturday.

"Unfortunately, it got desperately trapped in the tough, sticky web of the spider," the agency said.

"The spider pulled the web higher and suspended the snake above the ground. It then managed to get to the neck of the snake, using its beak to pierce the snake and inject its poison."

seriously, what kind of spider was it?
I would not put this past the Brazillion Wandering Spider or...say a Sydney funnel web.
I did not think China had anything very deadly.

" Beautiful bunch of Ripe Banannas... Highly deadly black tarantula
daylight come and me want to go home.....
