Freaked-out Arachnid - Thomas Morgan

This freaked out net-casting spider uses those big eyes for its nocturnal feeding habits. These guys hold a small web-like net with their four front legs and stretch it to cast over prey. Net-casting spiders are not dangerous. They are sometimes called ogre-faced spiders, but I like them.
