Hi, i have watched the movies in slowmotion and the second video, I ve seen, that the spider could be still faster than on that movie because the cricket is holding a leaf on its leg and the spider regestrate that and take the leaf away.
If anyone would like to see, I can send that video via email to you and you can put it in slowmo.

I like the "Good God" comment on the 2nd video, they are sooo fast! What I like about them is they just stay in their hole and rarely come out. Maintenance must be super low as well.

This video is great, I can just see the trapdoor waiting inside for the precise momment. I sure would hate to be that cricket, or any cricket for that matter.
