    I was wandering down my front path on the way home from work the other day and came across a real life and death struggle. I couldn't believe the spider had managed to catch something so big.

    LOL. I have no idea who the lizard got up there. And I thought about saving it, but I figured nature should be allowed to run its course.

    :shock: I've seen a 3-4 inch grasshopper ensnared and wrapped but never would've imagined something so large would get trapped...then again Frodo was a victim too. :D
