A giant spider has been spotted rudely interrupting a pair of flies having sex.
The two flies were seen clinging to each other in Adelaide, South Australia, when their intimate moment was ruined by a spider, who dragged them up a wall by its pincers.
A photo of the terrifying encounter was shared to a Facebook page last Tuesday captioned, ‘two flies having sex, then bang’.

Australian homes have been overrun by the creepy crawlies due to the end of the summer breeding season.
The large, long-legged spiders known for their speed have appeared in droves this season as cities across the country cop a plague of arachnids.
The sightings, which have been shared widely on social media, bring little comfort for those with arachnophobia.
Recently, a video shocked viewers when a red-browed finch was found hanging upside down from the sticky spider’s web in a backyard in Johns River, in New South Wales.
The footage showed the bird wrapped in the spider’s web and hanging from its tail.
