Whip Spider (Argyrodes colubrinus)

is a species of comb-footed spider found in eastern Australia. This spider is noted for eating juvenile wandering spiders by immediately descending on them when the spider hits its web. They are also characterized by their long abdomen from which I assume they get their name, this long abdomen probably helps camouflage the arachnid among sticks.
