Worst way to die. Ever.

Hey Diggers! Here’s reason #42 why this site is better than yours.

And, my weekly non-green bit of bizarrary brings us to Germany and the scene of one of the creepiest ways to die around

A MAN who lived in his own “zoo” of lizards and insects was fatally bitten by a pet black widow spider — then eaten by the other creepy-crawlies.

Police broke in to Mark Voegel’s apartment to find spider Bettina along with 200 others, several snakes, a gecko lizard called Helmut and several thousand termites had gorged on his body.

Neighbours alerted police after becoming alarmed by the stink.

And horrified officers were met by a nightmare scene.

A police spokesman said: “It was like a horror movie. His corpse was over the sofa.

“Giant webs draped him, spiders were all over him. They were coming out of his nose and his mouth.

“There was everything there one could imagine in the world of reptiles.

“Larger pieces of flesh torn off by the lizards were scooped up and taken back to the webs of tarantulas and other bird-eating spiders.”

  2. And what were they all doing loose in the apartment? Did he let them all out for playtime before he got bitten? Perhaps the tarantula let them all out, thinking “too much for me – better share”

  3. Termites do not each flesh, they eat wood.

    If spiders and lizards were loose in the same apartment, the spiders are going to get eaten.

    If snakes are loose in the apartment with lizards and tarantula’s, the lizards and tarantula’s are going to get eaten.

    No matter how much you appreciate the wild never forget that to it you are at best competition and at worst, food.
