The Goldenrod Crab Spider (Misumena vatia) is a species of color-changing flower spiders. A crab spider has the ability to blend in with its surroundings. It can change its color from white to yellow, green, and anything else. This takes the crab spiders about three days to change its colors. These creatures do not spin webs, but use silk to capture the prey or hold the eggs. They are known to have a good vision and are chance predators. Known by many other names like flower spider, flower crab spider, and smooth flower crab spider, they are mostly seen during bright and sunny summer days, the time when pollinators are present.
