Another unique species found in the Amazon rainforest is the spider building a more massive spider decoy. Of a distant, it looks to be a medium-sized spider about an inch beyond, seemingly lifeless and drained, hanging in the center of spider web along the side of the tracks. Nothing extremely exposed to the standard part of the Amazon. As you surround, the spider begins to wobble fast forward and back, letting you know this spider is alive. It is only about 5 mm in body length. The fake spiders are supposed to serve as decoys meant to confuse as part of a defense mechanism. They create lures that are clumpy and made out of many tiny balls built from egg sacs, ruins, and victims, rather than something that looks like another spider. This spider is unique and smart because of its way of avoiding its predator.
