    Default Mimicry

    This is an ant mimicking spider. Shot at shendurney, but its quite common .

    This is the male of the species .It's mimicking a weaver ant carrying another ant. The females do not have the extended jaw.

    That is an interesting behaviour. There is so much that we are not aware about the insect world. Thanks for sharing the information.

    Looking forward to know from you..

    Always wanted to see this someday... what habitat is it found in? Since you say it's common, maybe I could go in search of it! (I simply love this micro world of invertebrates)

    This image is from Shendurney in kerala. But I have seen a similar spider once on the main gate of our building in Pune.
