The species of wasp arrested the spider prey with a string and dragged it to its nest. Accordingly, the female wasp used the spider’s body as a living host, laid an egg inside the alive spider and then the larva ate it alive from inside out.
Incredibly, the wasps can drag a spider twice their own height. Nevertheless, the photo uploaded to Reddit has been shared 37,000 times. Similarly, it has received about 4000 comments with many individuals from the United States and the United Kingdom surprised at the wildlife living in Australia.
