Day 29 of Project 365

Monkey Lynx Spider

Lynx spider is the common name for any member of the family Oxyopidae. Most species make little use of webs, instead spending their lives as hunting spiders on plants. Many species frequent flowers in particular, ambushing pollinators, much as crab spiders do. They tend to tolerate members of their own species more than most spiders do, and at least one species has been identified as exhibiting social behavior. Now why his guy is called a Monkey Lynx Spider i am not too sure about so leave me a comment if you know why.
