Jumping mysteriously.


Remember the jumping spider from before? (You know, the one I blasphemously likened to kittens.) Menemerus bivittatus, yes. Now you remember.

Turns out that they are really skilled at crypsis, blending in completely with their environment. It’s tiny to begin with (about 8 mm end to end, if I  were to guess) and they are really hard to spot on the trunk of a coconut tree, which I found they prefer.

Anyhou, no big lecture today, so I hope you liked the snap. Do come back on the morrow, though.
