Fishing Spider

Whatever you do, don’t mess with the fishing spider.


I thought this would be kind of cool mentioning other forms of life that like to fish for food, well here’s an arachnid species that catches its fish without a rod and reel. The fishing spider is actually called a Dolomede, coming from the Pisauridae spider family. Another nickname that has been given to them is dock spider. These species of spiders have made a home in Africa and New Zealand, well away from America if you are worried.

They capture there food by grappling them with their foremost legs, which have small claws, and then inject them with their venom to paralyze their prey.

As you can see in the picture they can somehow hover over water with there legs, kind of strange. But, I’m sure they don’t go to far out of bounds from the shore line because of the big fish that lurk below.

Here’s a really cool video from National Geographic of the fishing spider eating a frog, yes a frog you’ve heard right. Along with frogs, they love to eat small fish, tadpoles, and other insects. Awesome huh?
