This spider eats the snake
London: Some spiders in South Africa can tangle up a snake by trapping it in the sticky mesh and then spinning a fine web around its coils.
Eventually, the whole snake is forced into a scaly ball by the spider`s strong web.
A shocked office receptionist stumbled upon the insect`s mammoth feat at her workplace in South Africa, The Sun reported Thursday.
Tania Robertson was arriving at the electrical firm when she spotted the brown button spider tucking into possibly its biggest meal ever - a 14-cm long Aurora house snake.
The spider - which is actually quite rare in South Africa - is not as deadly as a black widow but still did damage to the snake.
