A husband and wife got the fright of their lives when they stumbled across a spider eating an entire possum.

Justine Latton and her husband from Tasmania were on a road trip to Mt Field over the weekend when they came across the extraordinary scene. 

She posted the photo of the huntsman spider devouring the pygmy possum to the ‘Tasmanian insects and spiders’ Facebook page.

Pygmy possums are a family of small possums.

Whoa that’s one strong spidey!‘ one person commented. 

Awww. Everyone’s gotta eat, but man!‘ another person commented. 

OMG what a once in a life time photo opportunity,‘ another person wrote. 

Would have been amazing to see from the onset of battle — would have been so hard to not step in and help the little possum though,‘ someone else wrote. 

I think I would have run for cover after seeing this giant spider eating this small possum. What about you?
