The pattern on the happy face spider has to circles parallel to each other on its back, and below it, has a odd curved like shape. What makes the pattern so unique is that it resembles a smiley face. In the text it says," The marks resemble two circles that look like eyes. There is a curved shape below, similar to a smile."
Some scientist believe that the markings help warn away predators, but others seem to believe that they do not help to protect the spider at all. In the text it says," Some scientists think the spider may have developed these strange markings as a way to warn predators, such as birds. However, not all scientists agree on this theory. Some believe the features may do nothing to help the spider avoid its enemies."
Living on the undersides of leaves helps the spider stay out of the limelight, because no other animal, or human, would be able to find it keeping the spider out of the center of attention. In the text it says," The happy face spider generally tries to stay out of the limelight. It lives its life on the undersides of leaves, deep in the rainforest. This can make it hard for scientists to locate and study."
