Found another Another Ant Mimicking Spider today. Different from the other one I posted ont he 21st Jan 06. Thanks to my daughter who spotted it. Was packing up to go home when she saw this. At first look, I thought it was an ant....it moved like one and looks like those large black ones you see. But on closer inspection, it was a Another Ant Mimicking Spider! Spent awhile taking it....~10min....would have loved to stay longer....but family was waiting for me....:( Well what to do?

Anyway appreciate your comments.
