Weird: Spider Eating a Bird in Picture

spiderSeveral pictures have circulated via email about a spider eating a bird recently. The wildlife experts confirmed that the pictures are real and not fabricated or photoshopped. This is really weird knowing that the bird is bigger in size compared to the spider.

Take a look at the pictures of the Spider Eating a Bird below.


The pictures of the mammoth spider eating a bird were captured from the backyard of an Atherton property, West of Cairns in Australia.

Joel Shakespeare, the head spider keeper at NSW's Australian Reptile Park, said, "Normally they (mammoth spiders) prey on large insects, it's unusual to see one eating a bird."
