I'm no expert in evolution, but I'm wondering if seeing patterns like this are ever considered to be Apophenia or Pareidolia? I mean how do they prove it's evolution unless they have a specimen from ages ago to compare it with?

Anybody care to explain I'm trying to learn?!

How ironic would it be if it died by being banged by an actual spider?

If that's the case, wouldn't it have been more intelligent not to have predators in the first place. chuckle

I found something interesting that might explain how and why animals and insects develope camouflaging.

How stuff works. Camouflaging

Quote:Other animals use a more aggressive sort of mimicry. Several moth species have developed striking designs on their wings that resemble the eyes of a larger animal. The back of the hawk moth caterpillar actually looks like a snake head, a frightening visage for most predators the moth would come across. A simpler variation on this adaptation is simple color mimicry. In many ecosystems, smaller poisonous animals develop a bright coloration -- predators learn to steer clear of these colors, lest they get a mouthful of venom. Over time, other, non-poisonous species may develop the same coloration, cashing in on the nasty reputation of the poisonous species.

Quote:Mimicry is a different approach than ordinary camouflage, but it works toward the same end. By developing a certain appearance, an animal species makes itself a harder target for predators and a sneakier hunter for prey. In different areas around the world, you'll see all sorts of variations and combinations on the basic elements of camouflage. As animal species evolve, they become more and more in tune with their environment. Often, these sorts of adaptations are more effective survival tools than an animal's more aggressive weapons of defense (teeth, claws, beaks). After all, being entirely overlooked by a predator is preferable to having to put up a fight.

That's a good point, I think.
