The Happy Face Spider

This spider reminds of the Joker from Batman - "Now I'm always smiling..."  This happy face spider is found only on the islands of Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Hawaii, and is known for the unique patterns that decorate its pale abdomen. Scientists believe Theridion grallator may have developed its distinctive markings to discourage birds from eating it.  More amusing pictures here.
