Known for eating other spiders, Portia is a genus of the jumping spider that is able to leap up to 50 times her own body length.
The genus of jumping spider feeds on other spiders. They are remarkable for their intelligent hunting behavior, which suggests that they are capable of learning and problem solving, traits normally attributed to much larger animals. That is why many call it the spider with super powers.
They prefer other spiders to insects, and one of its specialties is invading another spider’s web and eating the spider. Portia stands on another spider’s web and plucks at the silken threads, imitating the vibrations made by mosquitoes. They also eat spider eggs.
This video, captured by stunning close up footage, allows you to witness this amazing spider use its super powers to dine on prey three times her size.
