Net Casting Spider (Deinopis sp.)
The net casting spider is named for its strange hunting behavior.
The spider casts a net made of sticky coils of silk and suspends it between its front legs, while dangling above a surface. When prey passes under it, the spider propels itself forward, casting its net over the prey and trapping it in the silk.
