Default Hunter/Gatherer

Like ambush bugs and a few others, Crab spiders are notorious for their ability to camouflage themselves and then pouncing onto their prey to deliver a deadly and debilitating bite



It is not uncommon, at least in my observations, for one spider alone to take more than one, mabye two or more, prey items in the exact same area.



Also in my observations, especially when the prey is a bee, the choicest part of the prey anatomy is directly behind the head where it joins the thorax, it is here in this area where the soft tissue is vulnerable to the fangs of the spider. Here in this second image we see the fangs driven deep into the soft white connective tissue between the head and thorax area.
