Caption: Jumping spider. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Myrmarachne formicaria jumping spider. Jumping spiders stalk their prey before leaping on it from a few centimetres away. Spiders of the Myrmarachne genus look very similar to, and mimic, ants. Four eyes are seen on its head. The large chelicerae (at lower centre) are pincers that are used to tear up its food. Either side of these are the two palps, sensory structures for feeling and manipulation. Magnification: x33 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
