Carnage in the kitchen at Christmas

On Christmas morning I thought one of ‘our’ Black House Spiders looked a little strange. Too big!
Maybe she was mating!
Sadly, a large White-tailed Spider was clinging to her and sucking the life out of her.
White-tailed Spiders are famed for their ability to cause necrosis in their bites. But I am more interested in the fact that they are spider hunters – they just cruise from web to web, munching down on easy prey.
