In one such discovery, a video of a redback spider feasting upon a snake has taken the Internet by a storm.

Redback spiders, indigenous to Australia, are highly toxic. To humans, they are neurotoxic and generally non-fatal if the bites are treated in time. An anti-dote for the same was made available in 1956.

Generally found in warm sheltered spaces, this spider hunts on insects, other spiders and small vertebrates. The spider kills its prey using the venom after biting through its fangs.

Between 2000-10,000 people are bitten by this spider each year in Australia. Since the spiders live near to the human residences, they are often found crawling inside the houses and biting the pets.
