Actually, it isn't a 'story', there is a ballet called The Spider's Feast, and it does tell the story of a spider becoming the victim of a mantis Smile

I now know...lol. After reading your descrip I thought, hang on, and went to Google "Spider's Feast"...and it was real! That's why I called you a fantastic storyteller...'cos you made me believe you'd come up with it Grin
