The Red Back spider is a scary little sucker. They’re hard to see and they pack a very dangerous bite.

We’ve found 3 of the best Red Back attack videos we could find. We dare you to try and watch all three!

Red Back Spider VS Giant Cockroach:

In this clip you can see how a Red Back uses it’s silk to overcome prey many times it’s own size. The clip is sped up so you can see just how the spider gets past the cockroaches hard exoskeleton.

Yep Red Backs are dangerous but it’s pretty cool watching nature in action…
