Pirate spider catches scorpion (Cercophonius squama)
While there are a few 'lunch' shots around.... I was lucky to swatche the whole process here.
The spider (Mimetidae;Australomimetus sp.) paralysed the scorpion, (although the scorpion looked much bigger), wrapped it and put a thread on, went back up the wall to it's lair, then hanging by one leg hauled the scorpion up at least a metre.
''Cercophonius squama'', commonly known as the forest scorpion or wood scorpion, is a scorpion native to southeastern Australia. It is typically around 25–40 mm long. Its colour consists of different shades of brown.
