Jérémy Schalkwijk, 33, watched in surprise as the giant children’s web spider let his teeth sink into Cleo and drag him away.

Despite being half the size of the fish, the hungry spider incredibly managed to drag its prey up to the vertical concrete wall at the edge of the pond.

He said: “It was a crazy, crazy sight. You don’t see that every day. “

Jérémy showed his fish to his new girlfriend Athina Yalias on their second date in Barberton, South Africa, about 225 miles east of Johannesburg.

He added: “I could not believe that a spider could tolerate something twice as heavy.

“I’ve never seen anything like it. I knew that spiders could fish, but never such a large size.

The spider pulled its prey against the wall using a combination of its teeth and front legs.

‘You sometimes see it with small fish such as fingerlings, but never with a goldfish. This was twice the weight of the spider. “

Jeremy said he saw the arachnid sink into the pool while he clung to the edge and then dragged his prey against the wall with a combination of his teeth and front legs.

He hurried to show Athina what was going on, but when they returned the spider and its prey were “nowhere to be found.”

Jérémy said: ‘I saw this on the second date I had with Athina.

“She couldn’t believe it. She’s not a real bushwoman, so she doesn’t have much experience with animals, but she was so impressed.

“When we returned, both animals were nowhere to be found.

“We have a pond with goldfish and I just wanted to show her the fish, then I saw this.

“I saw the spider catching the fish and he had taken it out of the water.

‘The spider can fish if there is grass or a branch above the water, but this was a vertical concrete pond.

‘I tried to take the photo of the spider above water so that you can see it vertically. It would be difficult. “
