The scientific name of the northern jeweled spider is Gasteracantha fornicata and it is from the family Araneidae, the family of orb weavers.

3. Brown Huntsman Spider

Brown huntsman spiders do not use spider webs to feed on prey. These spiders are known to hunt by waiting and making no noise above their prey, and then rush forward when their prey gets close. They are fast, agile, and can move through tight spaces. They feed at night. Huntsman spiders, members of the family Sparassidae, are known by this name because of their speed and mode of hunting in wildlife. They are also called giant crab spiders because of their size and appearance.

4. Spitting Spider

This amazing spider has a distinctive ‘slow-walking’ behavior, thanks to its long, slender legs. Their front two legs are the longest, and these play a crucial role in the spitting spider’s ‘track and lure’ predation. The species is widespread in Britain south of a line between the Humber and Glamorgan, but very rare further north and absent from Scotland. It is widespread in western and central Europe as far north as Denmark.

The crab spider’s color varies, but most species are brown. Some are brightly colored in yellow, green, or even pink.
