Fishing Spider
July 28, 2009
WTB,
I promised you these a long time ago.  Here are the images of a spider
eating the frog.  It’s a little hard to make out but it is probably a green
tree frog and this is on a leaf of a Sagittaria.  It occurred in our little
nature area, the Kiawah Swamp Garden.  Not sure of the actual type of
spider.  Kinda creepy though; don’t usually consider consumption in that
direction among Phyla.
Here are a couple of other links for your enjoyment.

Thanks for checking on this.  We’ve used your site to ID a lot of our
questions already but this one had us stumped.  I’ll have to send you an
image we have of a spider, I’m assuming a fishing spider, eating a green
tree frog.  It was back pre-digital so we’ll see how the scan comes out.
Thanks again for the great work you do,
Norm Shea

Dear KICA Maint,
Thanks for sending these amazing documents of a Six Spotted Fishing Spider eating a Tree Frog.  It is a wonderful addition to our recent posting of a Common House Spider feasting on a Skink.
We enjoyed watching your videos of Alligators.
