Jumping Spider Phidippus Audux with meal

This guy is a savage hunter, but the caterpillar fought back for at least 10 minutes. What a trooper, but in the end... resistance is futile.

 

It's really interesting to watch these guys hunt. They generally approach from the back and bite, then move their grip eventually to behind the head to avoid bites from the prey.
