Slender sac spider (mating?)

Cheiracanthium gracile


A small to medium size spider with incredibly large chelicerae encasing long recurved spurs.


On eucalyptus stems in a local nature reserve.


Not certain what is happening here. One spider is white, both seem the same species. Could this be a mating with lunch in mind?
