Spiders of Bukit Nenas

While we on our bug population census taking mission of Bukit Nenas, I stumbled upon
some really cool spider species.The area is teeming with spiders and during my three-hour search there, I landed at least
five different species of arachnids.There were jumping spiders and orb weavers and the most commonly found specie of
jumper is the Orisima Ichneumon.This colourful spider guards its lair jealously from invading hoards of ants and other winged
insects.
