The son of a West Australian woman Jamii-Leigh Marwick found a spider attacking a brown snake in their shade and for sure decided to film it. The video will give you chills for sure.
The YouTube description reads:
'A battle between two of Australia's most venomous creatures has unfolded in a woman's backyard shed, and ended in an unlikely outcome.
West Australian mother-of-three Jamii-Leigh Marwick said her son Eamon found a deadly eastern brown snake caught in the web of a dangerous red back spider on Sunday.
Footage shows the juvenile snake – one of the most venomous in Australia – whipping back and forth as it tried to free itself from the strong web of its opponent.'
Ms. Marwick said, "In the end while I was trying to rescue the reptile, before I realized how dangerous it was, I had to kill it."
"In my attempt to save him… I accidentally dropped a jar on the poor bloke and he didn't survive," she explained.
The spider was now no longer a threat.
