A water-dwelling Nilus spider with a kill double its size, under the leaf of a water hyacinth. Commonly referred to as the Fishing Spider, it kills by injecting the fish with neurotoxic venom. The spider then hauls its kill onto dry ground and administers chemicals to liquefy body tissues before eating it.
