A MAN was found dead in his apartment draped in spider webs and more than 200 spiders, several snakes, thousands of termites, and a gecko were feasting on his corpse.
Mark Voegel, 30, was found dead in Dortmund, Germany.
Authorities were alerted when concerned neighbours noticed a horrendous stench emanating from the apartment.
His black widow, Bettina, is believed to have administered the deadly bite.
Voeger's apartment has been described as both a "zoo" and a "jungle" by authorities. He never let people visit.
A police spokesman said, according to the Sun: “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.”

Bosses at a British theme park were forced to move a new ride after workers reported seeing what appeared to be a headless monk, Sky News reported Monday.
Staff building the ride at Thorpe Park, near London, encountered several strange phenomena, including the ghost and reports of objects being moved.
A paranormal detection agency called in by park bosses to carry out tests found that an ancient burial ground or settlement could have been disturbed.
Managers at the theme park decided to relocate the ride to another area and also called in a forensic team to carry out further investigations.
The ride, named "Storm Surge," was originally meant to have been built in an area on the site known as Monk's Walk. The old footpath has linked the ruins of nearby Chertsey Abbey to Thorpe Church since the year 666 AD.
The ride's foundations would have been over 49 feet deep in an area of the park where stone coffins were previously excavated.
