Amazing Animals: Portia Labiata Jumping Spider, Smartest Bug!


Behold the worlds smartest bug! this spider makes a living by tricking other spiders into thinking there’s someone tapping at their web waiting to be eaten, except they get eaten themselves! It can even tell the difference between other species of spider and will use different tapping patterns based on past effectiveness to lure its prey. Its literally capable of solving problems and will recognize different patterns and objects by sight, exceptional by bug standards. Its also a patient bugger known to track the movement of its prey for hours waiting for the best time to strike. I’m glad i’m big enough to squish this thing because it is an unquestionably clever and terrifying beastie!!!
