Although the Crab Spider is not an insect, it does play a part in the insect world. The Crab Spider, of the Arachnida class, is a major predator of insects such as bees, flies, moths and mosquitoes. Some Crab Spiders are also able to change their color depending on the color of their environment, such as changing from yellow to white.
