General information about Crab Spider :

They are called crab spiders because they resemble crabs, with two front pairs of legs angled outward and bodies that are flattened and often angular. Also, like crabs, Thomisidae can move sideways or backward.

Crab spiders do not build webs to trap prey, but are hunters and ambushers. crab spiders use their powerful front legs to grab and hold onto prey while paralyzing it with a venomous bite.
