Huntsman spider eating a pygmy possum

Doing the rounds virally at the moment is these pictures of a hungry Huntsman spider eating a  pygmy possum!


Found in a Mt Field Ski lodge in Tasmania, Australia.

Basically, the possum is the size of a large mouse.

There are many kinds of Huntsman Spiders, they are found all around the world and are so named for their speed and mode of hunting.

This photo reminds of that time this giant orb weaver caught a bird...

Hippopotamus about to snap an alligator in half

It was when I saw the movie Congo that I realized how dangerous hippos can be.

They were not some cute characters in the Hungry Hungry Hippos game, no, they are strong beasts who rule their river domain with brutal efficiency.

So, you can imagine what's about to go down with this alligator caught in the jaws of this big beast:

We have of course seen hippos eat crocodiles before though seeing this zebra do some dental cleaning on one was the cutest thing!

Fox gets skunked

Not the fantastic Mr Fox.
A clever skunk blasts a predatory fox in the face with his scent.

Amateur photographer Jocelyn Rastel Lafond was luckily enough to capture the failed attack by the fox on camera in Lavaltrie near Montreal, Canada.

Lafond said the fox had "such a ridiculous expression after getting sprayed".

It's a double fail for the hungry fox as he lost his lunch too! These foxes had a bit more luck though!

Funnily enough, when beer gets too much exposure to light, the beer is said to have been skunked.
