Wow... I almost can't believe that's a spider! The "horns" on its back are so much longer than its legs... Biodiversity is incredible!

Yes. They help protect spider from larger predators.

Do bugs ever try to jump onto your face while you are taking pictures of them? I could just imagine you trying to get the right shot and having a little critter launch itself at you in an attempt to flee, or you having to chase little bugs around because they won't hold still.

Only jumping spiders tries to jump on the lens. Most animals try to escape, if they are disturbed.

Może służyć jako broszka :) ...lub grzebień.

Aby go zdobyć, musiałem cichaczem wleźć do nieużywanej klatki dla dzikich zwierząt w jakimś zapuszczonym Zoo w Kinabalu. To była niezła akcja :D
