Jumping spider v/s Grasshopper

Spider - Hyllus semicupreus (Female)


One of the most interesting encounters I have ever seen... This small jumping spider was battling with a Gigantic Grasshopper. This war happened for half an hour and finally jumping spider got its meal..It was amazing to watch.. Hope you too will enjoy the pics..

oh, put in tupperware. I found a jumping spider very similar to this. I'll post yet. It bit me while I manipulate the leaf. So that was fun.
