Aaahh! Nature! Du Arsch!
Spiders are traditionally viewed as predators of insects, but a new study suggests that eating fish is widespread among species that live near water. In some cases, the arachnids used powerful poisons to kill fish that were much bigger than them. […]
In order to catch its prey, the spider will typically anchor its hind legs to a stone or a plant, with its front legs resting on the surface of the water, ready to ambush. The fish is then dragged to a dry place before the feeding process can begin. This usually lasts several hours.
