Updated: Apr 26

We spotted this beauty today in the kitchen where it was captured and then released outside. This was not a meek spider, it had quite the personality, holding its long front legs wide open. With its distinct colouring and clearly visible double row of eyes, this is a notable little garden friend. As always, nice work mother nature.


- called crab spiders because of their unique ability to walk sideways as well as backwards and forwards

- they have the ability to change colours (pale green, pink, yellow, white) based on their surroundings
