Redback spider versus Snake is the battle royale that will give you nightmares all week

Only in Australia! This video from Victoria shows us just how deadly the redback spider is, even when a snake is concerned. It also shows us why we should never, ever go outside again.

Farmer Neale Postlethwaite shot this short clip after he found a snake hanging from a web under the engine of his VT Commodore on his Gooroc farm.

After he went in for a closer look, he found that the snake was not actually dead but moving.

‘The next day the snake was on the ground and a trail of ants were getting into it, so I don’t know how much lunch the spider had’, Postlethwaite told the Sydney Morning Herald.

While redbacks are not known to attack snakes, anything is possible in Australia.
