Funny creatures – Dolophones conifer

Dolophones conifera, known as the wrap-around spider, can flatten itself and fold around a tree stump to protect itself from danger.

This spider perfected the art of camouflage. The females of these species grow to only 9 mm long, while the males are relatively smaller and about 5-6 mm long.

They have a brown body that is in perfect camouflage with the bark of the trees where they live. They have large, vertical webs that are usually spun between trees during the night.

 They can bite if provoked, but their venom is non-toxic, and does no harm to humanity.
