Graphic: Huntsman Spider Eats An Entire Possum In Australia

Usually, possums are not eaten by huntsman spiders. But if you are in Australia, anything is possible.

A couple who checked into a lodge in Mount Field National Park in Tasmania, saw a Huntsman Spider eat an entire possum in front of them.

The couple also took a picture of the huntsman consuming the poor possum.

On June 15, 2019, Justine Latton and her husband checked into a lodge in Mount Field National Park where they saw something that they were not expecting.

Latton decided to post the picture of the Huntsman Spider eating the poor Pygmy Possum on a Facebook Page.

Justine shared the picture on Tasmanian Insects and Spiders, she said, “Possum-eating spider! Taken by my husband at a Mt Field lodge.”

Possums are only 5-7 centimeters big and they only weigh 7 grams.

This is why the huntsman spider managed to eat it.

The post of Justine went viral really fast, yesterday alone, the post was shared by more than 5000 people.
