Now there’s something you don’t see every day. A South African man was attempting to impress his new date with his pet goldfish, Cleo, only to be stunned when a giant nursery web spider snatched the unsuspecting fish out of its pond and carried it away, The Sun reports. Jérémy Schalkwijk was getting ready to show the fish, located in his pond in Barberton, South Africa, to Athina Yalias, when the spider lowered itself into the pond and used its fangs and front legs to carry the fish away. Stunned, Schalkwijk captured photos of the incredible event.
