    The crab spiders are different to other regular spiders because they are one of the few spiders that do not cast a web to catch their prey. They rely on the ambush style of hunting which is perfect for these quick and nimble little creatures. Like most small animals and insects this arachnid is capable of taking on a much bigger prey like big moths or bees and wasps. Making sure that they are not stung in the process will ensure their survival for another day. Most of the crab spider family can be found in or around plants such as hiding in camouflage on a flower petal or being green like the stalk of the plant itself. By hiding and waiting for its prey to come along these animals do not have to stray far from their homes which is usually a small hole or nook and cranny somewhere on the plant.
