    Spider Devours a Possum

    Giant Tasmanian Spider Devours a Possum in Shocking Photos
    (Australia, of course)

    Every single thing in Australia is designed to kill you.

    Posted on a Facebook group called Tasmanian insects and spiders, the photos of the hairy huntsman spider is making headlines around the world.

    These viral photos are not for the faint-hearted. It shows a giant spider trying to eat a very small possum:

    It makes one wonder if the many-legged beast could make it away with a human baby – let's hope not!

    That doesn’t mean that you won’t find one in your flat or in the car.

    The Australian Museum states:

    “Huntsman spiders of many species sometimes enter houses. They are also notorious for entering cars, and being found hiding behind sun visors or running across the dashboard.”

    I dont watch animal snuff videos, but the fact is that every creature in nature eats another to survive, and in nature they get eaten alive every time. It's the same way a bear leaves you alone if it thinks you're dead, IDK if it has to do with biologically knowing something that's alive hasn't decomposed enough to cause nasty bugs that would then kill the animal eating the dead animal or if it has to do with the hell that is Earth and life and the idea were at the top level of it having ran through the gauntlet of eating and being eaten, on and up the food chain until we get to be human again and allowed to make a choice.

    One of the reasons I'm not into the idea of reincarnation, come bacvk as a possum which is then eaten alive by a pie plate sized spider? No thanks.

    Why is PETA not picketing the spiders? Does that possum not have rights?

    Huntsman Spiders freak me the hell out. We have them in this country too, you know. Pure nightmare material.

    Especially, our women.
    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....
