After the post about snakes the yesterday some of the comments made insinuated that some of the animals native to Australia might be a little dangerous. I mean, really! They are only dangerous if you enter their habitats, if you stay indoors and don’t venture out you are mostly safe, so I don’t really know what we were talking about…. 😉
I looked through the old articles and found this matryoshka-like snake. Upon being killed it was found to have the tail of another snake still in its mouth. It had eaten another snake almost the same size as itself. Ick. When the eaten snake was freed it was found to be still alive. Ick again.
Anyway that reminded me of this clip that did the rounds a short while ago. In this version of the food chain the snake came off second best to a spider. No need to be scared of creatures in Australia. None at all….
The bit of this clip that freaks me out the most is when the guy puts his hand right up to them to show us how large they are. If I was there all you would get is the cloud of dust and the sound of an ‘aaaaaaarrgghhhhhh’ fading into the distance.
