Cool Animal of the Day: The Pelican Spider

Posted: September 20, 2018 in Animals, Interesting Photos, Nature, Things I Love

Check out that Pelican Spider, man. Dude really does looks like a damn pelican. The most interesting thing about these guys is the fact that their main source of food is . . . wait for it . . . other spiders. Creeping up to the web of another spider, the Pelican Spider taps the web to mimic the struggling movements of a captured insect. Its long neck and fangs then reach into the web without it being captured. Once the spider comes close, the Pelican Spider’s “beak” stabs the prey and injects venom through the fangs from its tip. After a struggle, the prey is dragged out of the web and eaten. That’s just diabolical, man. Anywho, Pelican Spider.

Gimme a holler.
