It was a terrible day for Mister Toad, as he had no idea that he will become the key ingredient in this spider’s lunch.

This man was lucky to have his camera phone up and running in the nick of time, because what you are about to see happens all the time, but not in the public eye! The toad, spotted in Gainsville, Northern Florida, was initially seen stuck in the web before being ensnared by the spider in a quickly-spun web.

"I was at work outside, when we came across a bed full of banana spiders. One web had a toad in it, and I caught it on camera just in time." First bitten a few times, to partially digest the amphibian's insides before the feast, the <a href="" target="_blank">toad</a> is finally entirely bound by the web, unable to escape from the predator's grasp.

<a href="" target="_blank">Banana spiders</a>, also known as armed spiders, are so called because they are often found in banana leaves. They are typically venomous to humans and other animals.

There are several subspecies of spider that are called Banana spiders. This particular one is Argiope appensa, which is usually found in the West Pacific, but a few strays have been spotted in Florida as well.
