Of all the spiders found locally, none has more impressive fangs than Dysdera crocata, the Woodlouse Hunter. These beauties are often found under logs near the beach or in woodlands. I have this one in the lab, hoping one day to record some of the predation behaviour on video. Their bright coloration and fearsome armaments make these one of my favourite species.
That is one fearsome spider…
Looking forward to the video!
