Da sparkly spider

Ooh, shiny!

This spider was found in Singapore. When the spider is first born it's silver plates are very tiny. But an hour later the plates get bigger. There is a red line along their heart on the outside of their abdomen. When the spider feels threatened or is on the move the mirrors shrink. But when they are resting the plates are super close. The scientific name for it is Thwaitesia Argentiopunctata. That is a lot of confusion!

Hope you enjoyed our short presentation!  :D
