Hi Jemma! They do have 8 eyes, on this species, there are four up front, two on top, and two off to the sides, but they are all in the same general area.

Thanks for the comment Marta. I love the varieties of crab spiders that can be found, and most of them are pretty colorful.

Do they have only 4 eyes?
