    Cool Spider Trick

    I realize this isn't a "herp" but its a news article so i figured it fit in this section best.

    This spider makes a fake spider decoy to trick predators. Pretty cool stuff i thought.

    And if you're too lazy to read that article this pic from that link gives you the gist of it. :

    That is seriously cool.

    A spider smart enough to make a realistic decoy, right down to the correct number of legs ? That is awesome. Makes you wonder just how "dumb" animals really are, doesn't it ?
