Adanson’s House Jumper, Ratmalana, Sri Lanka

This was taken in my home in Sri Lanka. I tend to discover a lot in my home as I look in cracks and corners.

  1. Excellent! It has a very explicit, weird-shaped head! Posted 4 years ago
    1. It's rather a strange spider. It definitely jumps so it's jumping spider, but it often takes the stance of crab spider! Posted 4 years ago
      1. Interesting! Some jumping spiders have advanced way of mimicking another arthropod. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the crazy ant mimicking jumping spiders:

        1. Yes!, I've seen the ant spiders several times around my house. They mimic both the red ants and the black ants, and it's incredible how great at mimicking ant movements they are.
