These spiders are members of the family Mimetidae. One of their chief distinguishing features is the way they neutralize predators and capture prey through secretions they squirt out. There are some 200 known species. With their physical structures, modes of web-spinning and hunting techniques, every species that lived millions of years ago has exactly the same characteristics as modern-day spiders. This is one of the most important proofs that living things never evolved.
