Green Lynx Spider with prey

Peucetia arabica

Description:

"Lynx spiders are the members of the family Oxyopidae. They all are hunting spiders that spend their lives on plants, flowers and shrubs. The Peucetia species commonly are larger, vivid green, and rangy; they are active runners and leapers. The Oxyopidae also have spiny legs, and in many species those legs, augmented by the spines, seem to be used as a sort of catching-basket in trapping flying insects." ~wiki

Habitat:
