From YouTube description:

A battle between two of Australia’s most venomous creatures has unfolded in a woman’s backyard shed, and ended in an unlikely outcome.

West Australian mother-of-three Jamii-Leigh Marwick said her son Eamon found a deadly eastern brown snake caught in the web of a dangerous red back spider on Sunday.

Footage shows the juvenile snake – one of the most venomous in Australia – whipping back and forth as it tried to free itself from the strong web of its opponent.

This is yet more proof that Australians are seriously out there. The fact that this mother of three can calmly film two venomous animals just going at it in her own home and not freak out is either extremely badass or extremely crazy.

But perhaps the most ruthless part of this whole thing is what happened after the fight was over.

Ms. Marwick said in the end while she was trying to rescue the reptile, before she realized how dangerous it was, she actually killed it.

“In my attempt to save him… I accidentally dropped a jar on the poor bloke and he didn’t survive,” she wrote online.

“The spider is now also no longer a threat.”

That’s the Australian difference for you.
