Biscuit Kite Spider

Isoxya tabulata

Description:

A tiny little spider, 5mm in size, seen in Hlane National Game Reserve. This little spider was really a joint Mlawula effort as Tina did a great job of turning the stick, keeping the spider in place so I could take the photos. It kept running around and up and down trying to hide from the camera. What to do!? Some creatures are just camera shy!

Habitat:

Hlane National Game reserve

Imagine my surprise when I opened up project noah and found this little spider had received SOTD! Such a treat to find all your wonderful comments, as we are not on the net very often. Thanks Yasser... Made my day! Or maybe my morning, as we are on the way to Kruger National Park today, and that should be another incredible experience. Definitely a GOOD Day!

hahaha, yes Mauna, definitely aptly named! Tiny though, not nearly as big as my little finger nail. Didn't really see the pattern until I put it on the computer.
