Hawaiian happy face spider

Standard

This spider, which has the scientific name Theridion grallator, has developed bizarre markings which give it the appearance of a smiling face. Scientists belive the spider, which is harmless to humans, has evolved the patterns to confuse predators.  I defy you to read the name and look at its smiling face without smiling yourself 🙂
