Spider catches deadly baby snake with its web - viral video not fake

A grainy video of a spider hunting a baby snake is going viral. 

It shows the snake entangled in the spider web. It struggles to escape but finds that resistance is futile and loses the battle to the spider. 

The video is not fake. But it is from Australia and not India. The spider  and snake in the footage are a species we are not familiar with. 

It shows a redback spider capturing a baby eastern brown snake. An adult eastern brown is to be feared, but the baby is no match to the redback spider. 

The footage was shot by an Australian farmer in 2015, notes The Daily Telegraph.
