Sorriso afugentador: Este afável sorriso localiza-se no dorso abdominal de uma aranha indiana. Sim, aranha (aracnídeos), 8 patas, não formiga (inseto) que teria 6 patas. Apesar de vermos uma cara sorridente, os possíveis predadores a interpretam como os olhos de um predador maior que eles. - não se arriscam... Magnifico exemplo de mimetismo...

Wow ! Spiderman meet Venom here I wonder are they related?
