A resident of the city of Poteet, Texas, filmed the attack of a large spider on a bat in front of his house. The footage of the incident drew the attention of the portal UPI.
7 Aug Annette Alanis Guajardo (Annette Alaniz Guajardo) was going to work, when he saw in the street a bat in the web of black and yellow argiope. When the woman returned home, a spider came down on a dead mouse and allegedly ate it.
According to entomologist Matt Burton (Matt Bertone), these spiders feed mainly on insects, but in rare cases can attack larger creatures. “It’s well documented that they catch in their nets of birds and animals larger than themselves, and eat them,” explained Burton.
