Crab spiders are called that because they look
and walk sideways like a crab. They have 8
legs. The female is 0.5 inches long and the
male one-third inch long.Crab spiders can
be many different colours.They are the
same colour as their surrounding.
• Crab spiders live by flowers. They also live
by stems and leaves of plants.Crab spiders
live in North America and Europe.
• A crab spider does not spin a web. It hides
behind flowers and grabs its prey. The
spider then pumps poison into the victim’s
body.Then the spider eats it.
• Crab spiders lay their eggs in early summer.
The female lays the eggs in a silken
saucer.Then she covers the saucer with silk
to make a cocoon. She puts the cocoon
between leaves lying on the ground.
• Crab spider’s enemies are small
• Crab spiders are very lazy just like me.
