Crazy crab spider baffles Gympie property owner
A TINY but strange looking arachnoid has a Glastonbury resident looking for answers after he found the crab-like spider hanging off him this morning.
"I've never seen one in my life,” cattle framer Daniel Warne said of the bright-yellow creature with a hard oblong shell.
While the creature's sideway movements resembled a crab, Mr Warne said it had eight legs and was as small as a fingernail.
"It's definitely a spider - it's spinning webs,” he said.
"It's amazing - it looks really cute.”
Mr Warne said he has seen many golden orb spiders at his property, but is hoping somebody can shed light on his strange finding.
