Deinopis, also known as net-casting spiders, gladiator spiders and ogre-faced spiders. Spiders in the genus Deinopis catch their prey in an unusual fashion. They first spin a small upright rectangular web. This is then detached from its supporting threads and held horizontally above the ground by the spider’s long front two pairs of legs while the spider hangs almost vertically. Passing prey is then captured by dropping the “net” over it
