Pompilid Wasp vs Golden Wheel Spider

The original video clip has been removed from YouTube. We’ve replaced it with this clip from ContentMint.

A golden wheel spider evades the attack of a pompilid wasp How? With a speed of up to 44 turns per second. This phenomenal little clip is from Kalahari, the first episode of BBC’s Africa series, narrated by Sir David Attenborough.

All six episodes are available in HD on Amazon Instant Video.
