Pisaura mirabilis (Tent Spider)

Wikipedia Abstract

The nursery web spider Pisaura mirabilis is a spider species of the family Pisauridae. Males of this species offer food gifts to potential female mates. Some Pisaura mirabilis have also been observed to feign death, remaining still while holding the food gift in their mouths. When the female approaches and tries to take the food away, the male springs back to life and attempts to mate.
