Sunday Bugs: Lynx Spider Lunch

Sunday Bugs: Lynx Spider Lunch


Here's a juvenile Western lynx spider (Oxyopes scalaris) eating lunch in my back yard.

Lynx spiders are very quick and agile predators, not unlike the feline lynx.  They eat insects and other spiders, sometimes jumping up to an inch into the air to catch insects in flight.
