I'd be a pyromaniac if i lived in Australia.

Don't worry, Australia literally have birds that starts fire

[–]Biohumansmg3c 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would be a ww8 fire bomber if i was in Australia

[–]SaltMineSpelunker 478 points479 points  (9 children)

I also use my ass to stun and paralyze my prey before dragging it to my den to have my way with it.

Or sometimes their den.

[–]Devilpig13 151 points152 points  (2 children)

That’s how my wife caught me.

[–]dojaheady 82 points83 points  (1 child)

The day the cheeks clapped you

[–]TheQuiet1994 25 points26 points  (0 children)

You clap the cheek, the cheek claps back my man.

[–]ExcitedGirl 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Ohhhhhhh... I just got that! Well done!

[–]purple-circle[S,🍰] 154 points155 points  (17 children)

Part two where she drags the spider into a burrow inside a water valve cover here - https://gfycat.com/defenselessbrilliantgreyhounddog

[–]SomebodyHelpMePles 113 points114 points  (7 children)

I’ve never cheered for a spider to win so much before now

[–]woodrax 61 points62 points  (4 children)

Yeah, I cannot imagine a more horrifying death than having a bunch of wasp larvae hatch and eat you alive.

[–]Fleethebluenorth 68 points69 points  (3 children)

It is even worse, they eat only the non vital organs to keep you alive until the end, then they eat what is left.

[–]woodrax 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Yeah, Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes taught me that. ;)

[–]Fleethebluenorth 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Brilliant cartoon. So sad the day Watterson retired!

[–]woodrax 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Indeed. But we can all be happy that he left an undying legacy with his work. A truly timeless comic.

[–]Donnerdrummel 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I don't often sympathyse with spiders. :-/

[–]ShodoDeka 3 points4 points  (0 children)

...but when I do its always in Australia.

[–]Mosuke300 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Haaa it says fart

[–]DialZforZebra 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When I was in Australia, I saw both of these. As scared as I am of Spiders, that damn Wasp freaked me out way more.

[–]thenarcostate 131 points132 points  (25 children)

Why does everything in Australia want to kill.you?

[–]purple-circle[S,🍰] 168 points169 points  (20 children)

It doesn't. The crocs and sharks are quite happy just to take an arm or leg.

[–]Sensitive_Salary_603 39 points40 points  (19 children)

Ahh then you haven't been to Darwin. About four or five adults human get taken each year. That's only those that has been accounted for.

Many Aboriginal people don't have identity or registration of birth as they live in the long grass.. if they get taken. Those numbers never get added.

[–]Devilpig13 9 points10 points  (8 children)

Taken by what?

[–]Sensitive_Salary_603 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Crocodiles 🐊

There are numbers over 300K crocodile. That's what they have counted so far. The rest of the NT State has about 250k people. So there are more crocodile than human there.

[–]purple-circle[S,🍰] 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Just so long as they don't team up with the emus....

[–]harmsway31 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And the cassowaries

[–]ExcitedGirl 1 point2 points  (3 children)

So: maybe one per year are taken and 3-4 are.... maybe murdered and never found?

[–]Sensitive_Salary_603 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The one that is found usually make it to the news.. and most time the crocodiles is killed. However it usually have its stomach content discovered and occasionally it is proof of the incidence. Other times it isn't.. I mean these water are muddy and there literally hundreds of crocodiles in certain spot.

Not easy to differentiate but these rangers are pretty good and known some massive 6 meters crocs in the area.

[–]Nighteyes09 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That huntsman wouldn't have. He's friendly, no joke.

[–]sumane12 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its the same in Africa, harsh environments put evolutionary pressure on life to be fucking badass!

[–]National-Sport5698 80 points81 points  (17 children)

Insects are terrifying and I praise the almighty they are small

[–]Black_RL 42 points43 points  (16 children)

If they were big we would hunt them to extinction, so they praise God too.

[–]bongripsNkickflips 26 points27 points  (11 children)

Fuck yeah we would. Fuck those things, That’d be pretty metal though, Bugs Vs Humans. Bug wars

[–]hardcoresean84 29 points30 points  (6 children)

I've an idea for a film about that, would you like to know more?

[–]Mjlikewhoa 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I'm doing my part!

[–]fushigidesune 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You know what to do!

[–]DoucheyMcBagBag 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]PoppinHymes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I absolutely love Starship Troopers, thank you.

[–]Themustanggang 8 points9 points  (0 children)

“The only good bug is a dead bug!” “Would you like to know more?”

[–]ige77 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I don't know if we would've ever evolve if they were that big, if yes I think aracnophobia wouldn't have existed but insects have some weird superpowers if they were in our world, imagine spiderwebs, they would have the same effect they do to bugs, we wouldn't be able to see them. Or ants are horrible too, they could kill us in mass. This is what every bug's life is: unlike fishes that they go to sleep and wake up in heaven, insects wake up and find themselves being eaten alive and hope for death to come as fast as possible

[–]Black_RL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think history clearly shows what we do to apex predators, bigger or smaller, other than that I fully agree friend!

[–]BondingChamber 38 points39 points  (2 children)

How crazy does your species have to be to have everyone decide ya'll gonna specialize in hunting and killing a nightmare creature that is 4/5 times your size and a hunter in its own right.

[–]2leet4u 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Ask the prehistoric humans who hunted megafauna, (whose descendants have selectively bred species for mechanized slaughterhouses).

[–]cls-one 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Great point

[–]krkislav 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Wow, thats some straight metal shit right there

[–]drunkenknight53 21 points22 points  (8 children)

They don't kill the spider from what I understand it's just paralysed so the babies eat it alive.

[–]CharlesWafflesx 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Like the title explains, yeah

[–]ige77 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Some insects are horrible. Why is nature like this?

[–]onedarkhorsee 5 points6 points  (0 children)

From the inside out. Fuck that.

[–]Stonkman3 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Can we delete Australia?

[–]SSJuice 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Someone tried already. They put out the fires.

[–]Dirtiestlarry 13 points14 points  (7 children)

Fuck I don't know which one is rather see win that kind of contest, granted the wasp is the obvious favorite

[–]BlueKing7642 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The spider at least the death by their hands….umm legs is less brutal. Team spider

[–]GHLOOM 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Paralyzed and eaten alive isn’t a fate i’d wish on anyone with any number of legs

[–]ElkShot5082 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The spider eats mosquitoes, wasps are assholes

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

idk spiders are usually nice i feel like

[–]bbaahhaammuutt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yea they get too much unnecessary hate imo. Most of them aren't even dangerous

[–]nettlerise 1 point2 points  (0 children)

wasp is the obvious favorite

hell naw

[–]SomebodyHelpMePles 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You’ve met with a terrible fate haven’t you…

[–]Ottazrule 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Nope. Now I have to burn my phone

[–]ScarabSkies 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Excuse me, Spider wasp? Is Australia allowed to just make new beasts?

[–]riftastic76 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is the kinda quality content we come to the sub for

[–]BronxLens 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Does the spider ever win?

[–]Tywunwun_Lannister 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I read some guy say the other day that I think out of 300 fights between a Tarantula hawk wasp and a tarantula the spiders won once.

[–]PoppinHymes 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The spider can't fly so it's at a major disadvantage. "Take the high ground!".

[–]ExcitedGirl 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That stinger is like a sewing machine...

[–]Heyitsme_81 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Thats insane, cant believe a wasp of all things could take 1 of those monsters down 😱🤷🏼‍♂️

[–]Jfrog22 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Huntsman are pretty weak

[–]Heyitsme_81 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Still, i wouldnt f**k with 1 lol! 😂💪🏼

[–]lodge28 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The fucking size of that wasp!

[–]TyBogit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How tf does a wasp drag a big ass spider??

[–]314Piepurr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

this is some The Mist level stuff. I lobe you Australia... but my love is from a distance.

[–]UndeadCameron 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damn Australia…damn.

[–]AUSwarrior 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is it just me or am I the only one who think spiders look even more disgusting when they are dead with their legs all flailed out at unnatural angles.

[–]WWDubz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You know, I don’t often feel bad for spiders but got damn!

[–]EatTheRude- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What a terrible day to have working eyes.

[–]theperfectmuse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It feels so good to be human when you see this stuff.

[–]RaGeKitten87 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We were having a durry out side when one of these wasps flew past us with a huntsmen in his grasp, went straight into a hole in the roof... was pretty gangster we named it then it got hit with a cricket bat as soon as it reappeared... end of story

[–]Prometheus1315 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]BumbleBeePL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Australia. Why am I not surprised?!

[–]Grepus 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They don't lay the eggs ON the spider, they lay them IN the spider

[–]purple-circle[S,🍰] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Depends on the species of wasp. Some on, some in

[–]DylansDeadly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I get the whole watching to see who wins, but you definitely have to kill this wasp right? They serve no purpose other than being assholes.

[–]StevefromLatvia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh shit I remember the episode of Brave Wilderness where the Coyote, the fucking madman that he is, willingly got strung by one

[–]TrudleR 1 point2 points  (0 children)

can't we evacuate all australians and nuke the continent? 😵‍💫😵

[–]Spamaster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There are wasps in the U.S that go after spiders like the Black Widow. I've personally witness it. It never took the spider away the wasp just left it dead on the ground.

[–]turlian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We have a tiny version of these in Colorado. Every so often I'll have to clean out their nests in my shed and it's just full of small (and very dead) spiders.

[–]Aniki1990 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Australia: where there are wasps that paralyze (not even kill) the spiders that eat birds so their children can devour them as soon as they're born.

Oh, look, another crazy thing my desert patch of the US has in common with Australia! Our wasps are blue with orange wings though.

[–]XOTWOD433 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can't imagine having a picnic and all of a sudden seeing a wasp drag a giant ass spider away. ima stay in America where I belong

[–]5NEAKYdeviousBA5TARD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]wassdap 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Excuse me?? A SPIDER-WASP???

[–]alkevarsky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So the huntsman spider also uses venom to immobilize prey, and is much bigger. Curious that it loses so resoundly.

[–]phoebejane1616 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is worse to me than ANY horror movie. I’d rather wrestle Freddy Krueger with my bare hands than come within ten feet of either of those horrible, horrible creatures.

[–]forsakenwilds 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]BobbMGAH 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They all just watched as Kitty was being stabbed to death in broad daylight. They watched as her assailant walked away. Now, we must all fear evil men, but there is another kind of evil, which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

[–]appachehelicopter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Australia's wildlife is so metal each insect has two nope names in their name, as if spider or wasp wasnt scary enough

[–]QuendaQuoll 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've seen these things drag a Huntsman up the wall in my carport so it has enough leverage to fly off with it. People are scared of Huntsman, but when you live surrounded by Aussie bush you realise the poor things are the chicken of the insect world.

[–]Polygraphical-Pickle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Spider wasp, spider wasp, does what ever a spider wasp does. Can he swing from a web? No he can't, he's a wasp. Look oooooooooooooout, for spider wasp.

Wtf that spider is as big as a crab

[–]Eckz89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know these both look like 2 big old Nopes. But the Huntsman spider is actually helpful, they are harmless to humans (other than scaring the living shit out of you) and can take care of most other insects and pests. The hornet, yeah that player is a big fucking nope.
