    Meet the Hawaiian spider that will make you smile



    Scientifically, this tiny arachnid goes by the name of Theridion grallator - but it takes little imagination to see how it got its more popular name: the happy-face spider.

    Found only in rainforests in the Hawaiian islands, the spiders have a vast range of patterns and colours on their abdomens - yet all come from the same species.

    The amazing diversity is due to genetic variations, although the patterns may also change depending on diet.




    Spider View: Scientists think the happy-face spider has evolved its patterns to confuse predators

    The patterns may have developed as a way of confusing predators. The moment it takes an aggressor to work out whether the spider is prey or not provides a vital chance of escape.

    However, the species, which was discovered in 1973, is now under threat from the introduction of non-native animals to the islands.

    The most common form - or 'morph' - is plain yellow and has no smile. But other variations are plentiful - the 'red front' morph pictured here with a cluster of her eggs is the second-most common.
