Green Butt Spider

I don’t remember where I saw this or when I actually took the photo.  I do remember thinking it was interesting, since it has a green abdomen.

A spider!

This male spider is called a tropical orb weaver.  It comes in many shapes and sizes.  😀  Sometimes they have the green spot on the back and sometimes not.  Same goes for the two little black dots you see at the rear.

They like open woodlands.  During the day they like to hang around under leaves folded together with silk, like the one in this picture.  Their bite is not harmful to humans.
