They may not necessarily be big, but spiders are amazing creatures to watch in their natural habitat.

In the video below from YouTube, a camera films the elusive six-eyed sand spider as it hides itself.

The spider is a native to Africa, and although it has not been proven lethal to humans, its bites can kill smaller animals.

Luckily, the spiders prefer other prey, hiding themselves until a tasty meal wanders too closely and is ambushed.
