Descrição

She's STILL not forgiven me for once stroking her nymphal antennae!

I think Spike's a girl - fat tum & foul temper. All bluff, unlike her bigger cousins, Polyspilota aeruginosa, she never tried to stab me with her fearsome forelimbs and certainly didn't draw blood. Released quickly back in her thicket where she gradually calmed (last pic).

See her development from final nymphal instar. Here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/16163662

Never seen this before, ants raiding antlion traps and stealing their prey, removing the dead/dying termites. Didn't see any antlions being attacked, but the ants were in the bottom of two different traps wrestling food from the antlions.

Descrição

she hunts, he eats

this pretty female crab spider was observed on the bloom of a night flowering Cereus cactus and a while later the much smaller orange-brown spider (thought to be probably a male of the same species) was also observed on the same flower. Around dawn the bees arrived to harvest pollen and the female successfully ambushed one. When editing the photos it was noticed that the bee appeared to have too many legs and on closer inspection it was revealed that the male crab spider had sneaked in and was (presumably) eating his breakfast from the underside of the bee while the female was busy at the head end. Or was the crafty little male simply using the opportunity to close in on the female unseen?

Mystery thing

For all the clever clogs out there, what's this then? I'll zoom out gradually if necessary.

UPDATE: As per Jakob's guess, mating rain spiders, conveniently positioned between two glass doors and impervious to my prying lens.

This was not a speedy process. Some sperm was passed, followed by an intercourse pause (a phrase we usually reserve for the dinner table) and then more sperm was passed, perhaps from the other pedipalp?

The last four photos are from the morning after.

The video isn't great
