Spiders of the family Oxyopidae are generally hunters that rely on speed and agility to hunt for preys, commonly known as Lynx Spiders. They have unique eye arrangement of 8 that somewhat forms a circle on the “head”. However, they are usually recognized by the presence of spines spatially arranged on the legs, giving a prickly appearance.
Some of these Oxypids are remarkably common and abundant even back in the yard, but the more unique and bizarre ones are usually restricted to less-disturbed forests.
