Spider killed this giant Cicada, Singapore Botanic Gardens. (Macro)

Who would know that a spider would killed a Cicada 4 times its size. Unbelievable. It happened.

I believe the spider is the St. Andrew Cross Spider which is very common in Singapore, but this is the first time I saw it cuaght such a big prey. She was stationary all this while when I was photographing. I think her fangs were still lodge in the Cicada.
