Agression  - WL Spider Biting Paperclip - Dysdera crocata

Agression - WL Spider Biting Paperclip - Dysdera crocata
Basking Ridge, Somerset County, New Jersey, USA
December 6, 2012
Size: 1 in
This Woodlouse spider would bit the paperclip, and then wouldn't let go for a few seconds, even when being lifted into the air. It would bite down and then chew 3-5 times before it let go. Now imagine if that was your finger.
