|The Striped Lynx is a hunting spider that builds no web for snaring prey. About 1 to 1.2 cm in length, this spider tends to run and jump about very quickly, actively pursuing insects. The abdomen of this spider are long and thins. The legs are extremely spiny. There are black vertical bands along the side of the abdomen. Lynx Spiders are easily recognised by their eye arrangement in which six of the eight eyes form a hexagon. Their long legs are armed with nearly erect spines. The egg-sac is usually attached to a twig and is guarded by the mother until the spiderlings hatch. Please note the egg case in this is different from the previous one I posted.
