A chance enconuter. A ferocious clash. A spider and a wasp fighting for their very lives. It’s not often we get the opportunity to see a vicious death battle in the insect world, but that’s exactly what we have for you here.

The spider pictured here was innocently hanging out on the side of a wall when a wasp spotted it and approached. The wasp dove for the spider and attacked it, whereupon both animals dropped to the floor.

This is the start of the battle, and the spider seems to have the advantage. However, while it might be physically overpowering the wasp, the wasp has a weapon, using its sting to inject the spider with venom.
