Smiling Spiders

Spiders who show off smile-like markings are much more than Internet memes and they’re not here to make you laugh, either. Just the opposite: these spiders’ bold faces serve to scare and confuse potential predators.

This amazing creation of nature, a spider taking the shape of a happy face, is as harmless as it seems. This interesting spider is found in forests of Hawaii. The spider has eight legs like many other spiders but it’s smile makes it special.
