Crab Spider
by Dana G. & Jordenn

The crab spider is reddish and its body is crab like. It has spines, eight eyes in two rows. It lives in plants, fences, and rocks in the winter they hide under stones. The crab spider does not weave webs. It runs sideways like a crab. That is why it is called a crab spider. The crab spider mimics bird droppings so that it can eat the bugs that go near it. It takes on the color of the flowers to camouflage itself. They are wanderers and they're always looking for something to eat.
