Watch a Bee Heroically Save His Friend From an Attacking Spider

Jun 11, 2014

It looked like the end for our good friend the bumble bee. He was trapped in a web, fighting for his life, and a huge spider was going in for the kill. Then, out of nowhere, his bumble bee brethren swooped in to attack the spider and save his friend.

The video was posted on YouTube by a British dad who says he was recording the event "to show my son who was asleep at the time sort of a brutal life lesson."
