  Jumping Spider

 

Thailand

Jumping Spiders, known in Thai as maengmoom kradoht, have eight eyes, that consist of a fixed lens on the outside and a tiny retina at the back of a long tube, which the spider is able to move due to muscles that surround it.

 

This allows the spider to look from one side to the other while sitting still and make for a perfect hunting tool when ambushing prey. See also List of Thai Insect Names.
