Spider Ant Minic,
The antmimic spiders and the Antmimic Jumping Spider both look more like ants than spiders. Antmimic spiders live in close proximity to ant hills in the southeastern states. They do not eat ants but gain protection from looking like them. Ants are full of a noxious chemical called formic acid, which discourages most predators from dining on such spicy insects. By looking like ants, these perfectly palatable little spiders gain a measure of protection. The Antmimic Jumping Spider is Above: Ant mimic spider. loose bark. The retreat is used for egglaying, moulting and resting, the spider emerging at night to hunt insect prey.

Many spiders of the family Salticidae and Tarantulas (Theraphosidae) quickly assume defensive postures when threatened or disturbed by jerking the front legs upward, spreading the chelicerae and raising the whole cephalothorax. Antmimicking [Plate 5] is very popular among spiders. Several hundred species of spiders are known to be antmimics, though some Although mimicry has been an

The few studies performed concerned mainly ant—mimics. Several insectivorous birds chose to consume nonmimetic spiders and other insects instead of antmimicking Myrmarachne formicaria (De Geer) (Salticidae) and its model ant, Formica rufa Linnaeus (Palmgren et al., ant?

There are many spiders that, to people, resemble ants and are called ant mimics. We also have experimental evidence that predators that naturally avoid ants also avoid ant mimics, although they would normally prey on spiders (Nelson and Jackson, 2006b). This implies that ant mimics are convincing lookalikes of ants, even for nonhuman animals. On this basis, antlike Some spiders mimic the appearance of ants. Ants are avoided by many

Vital Statistics Antmimicking Jumping Spiders Antmimicking jumping spiders look and behave like aggressive green tree ants so that predators avoid them. The spiders and ants are often seen together in trees. Antmimicking jumping spiders look more like ants than spiders because FIG. 34. Antmimicking jumping spiders.

(Figure.34). So why might spiders benefit from mimicking ants? There are likely to be several reasons. One is that it could give them access f w Good mimics A few spiders mimic other animals, particularly ants. Ants are good animals to mimic because most predators avoid eating them. This is because ants are good at defending themselves. They live in large groups, and other ants will come to the aid of an ant that is attacked. Ants have a nasty bite, and they can spray acid at an enemy. They also taste bad. Some spiders smell and look like ants. Smell is the most important way that ants recognize each other.
