KURRAJONG HEIGHTS, Australia, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- An Australian woman captured video outside her home of an unusual battle between a spider and the snake that slithered into its web.

Sabrina Besselsen posted a video to Facebook showing the venomous redback spider doing battle with the red-bellied black snake that got caught in its web, which was attached to a chair outside Besselsen's home in Kurrajong Heights, New South Wales.

"The two main things I hate in life are together right now," Besselsen says in the video.

The spider eventually appears to bite the snake in the head, likely the blow that caused the snake's death.

"I'm officially moving to another country," Besselsen wrote. "Bye Felicia."
