Description


Another Spider from my Spiders of the World v1. This spider, I first saw in my own yard and yes, it was camouflaged in some sages. Rendered in Poser 13 Superfly. The Green Lynx Spider is common in the southern U.S., Mexico, Central America, and in many West Indies islands, especially Jamaica. It is usually found on green plants where it blends in to camouflage itself. Late in the season, it is prone to change its color from predominantly green to paler yellow, typically with streaks of reddish, suggesting degradation of the tetrapyrrole pigment in the blood. Gravid females may change their color to fit their background. This takes about 16 days It is a hunter spider and does not spin a web. For nesting, the female constructs one to five 2-centimeter (0.8 in) egg sacs in September and October, each containing 25 to 600 bright orange eggs, which she guards, usually hanging upside down from a sac and attacking everything that comes near. Remarkably, one of her means of defense is to spit venom from her chelicerae, sometimes for a distance of about a foot (300 mm). The eggs hatch after about two weeks, and after another two weeks fully functional spiderlings emerge from the sac. They pass through eight instars to reach maturity. The body of the female may be as much as 22 millimeters (0.87 in) long. The male is smaller, being more slender and averaging 12 millimeters (0.47 in) in length. It is the largest North American species in the family Oxyopidae. The green lynx spider very seldom bites humans, and when it does, its venomous bite, though painful, is not deadly but may cause surrounding swelling up to 7"-10" in diameter

I have taken several photos of them in the garden. they do not seem to have fear of humans, at least here. I have had my camera right in their face and they did not move hardly at all.
