Lol reminds me of an octopus! I’ll look into finding the species.
I believe this is a type of Crab Spider. Perhaps a Bark Crab Spider? Looks kind of like it, though I’m not too sure. I might be completely off.
I thought it looked like an octopus too!! Thanks for the input, I truly have no idea. The eyes do remind me of crab spiders.
I just basically looked through all the gray spiders on this site and found it!! It’s Tmarus angulatus and it is a kind of crab spider! 🙂
Oh wow! You’re totally right. Glad you found it! I was really curious too.
Nice find Adele! Its defensive posture is doubling as camouflage by having the legs parallel to the plant it is on.
