p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A seven legged spider???


Is there such a thing? I thought all spiders had 8 legs.I don't think the other leg is folded under him/her. Could it have gotten lost in battle somehow, or a narrow escape? Anyone know what kind of spider this is??

Being not fully awake, I wrote something quite incorrect. I have deleted it.

See Brian's comment.

Lovely capture- hasn't it just lost a leg- fairly common in the spiders I see. It had also previously lost one of it's front legs judging by the size difference.


Extreme example of leg loss below

I never thought of that. I didn't realize they lost legs like that. You learn something every day....

Oh, do you know what kind of spider it is?
