Net casting spider

brown twig spider

About a week ago, I was driving when a spider crawled its way across my dashboard. Then it fell on the floor where I could not see it anymore, I could just imagine it making its way to my feet. I freaked out mentally, but since it was the harmless sort, I managed to keep driving for another 5 minutes till we got home.

Harmless or otherwise, I generally prefer them where I can keep a safe arm's length. I found an interesting-looking sort (the spider looks like a twig) on my outdoor mat recently. I googled it and think it is called a net casting spider. According to Wikipedia: "When prey approaches, the spider will stretch the net to two or three times its relaxed size and propel itself onto the prey, entangling it in the web." Never let a day go by without learning something new!
