Spiders learning how to catch and eat fish

28 posts in this topic

More spiders are learning how to catch and eat FISH, new research reveals.

The eight-legged creatures lie in wait by garden ponds and lakes, reach in to grab passing fish then drag them off to devour them.

And for those who think this is the behaviour of giant species in the tropics of Africa, Australia or America, it even applies to European varieties including some found in the UK.

These spiders have taken up fishing as a hobby :)

Some water loving spiders enjoy relaxing in bubbles.

Just a heads up, Arachnids started out as aquatic creatures. Look up giant sea scorpions sometime.

The spider is having a relaxing dip and these fish come along and tease it.

Guess it is natural that the larger the specimen, the larger its food supply needs to be in order to satisfy its nutritional requirements. After all there is a bird eating spider too!

Watch out for spiders at your local pub ordering a delicious plate of fish and chips!

Serious note, pretty damned cool, it's amazing how nature works.

Spiders do like baths too.

Seeing spiders sat in water is really pretty.
