[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Ant Mimic Spider will prey on ant for food and seek protection with its ant mimic form. Normally ants do not come into the list of bigger prey as they can be very defensive as well as offensive against their enermy when they are in group.

Hello Kean,
What a neat looking spider you have posted. I have never heard of an Ant Mimic Spider before, but I can sure see how it got it's name. Beautifull shown with gorgeous colors and two awesome looking eyes. Well done!!
