Just for fun, what is the fastest spider you have ever dealt with?

    I keep bot these species and it seems like my Cuppienius salei are faster.

    maybe.. i know Sprassidae have like hyper extensions in their legs. those are probably faster, but Cuppienius dont really look to have that. maybe they'll just more prone to bolting.
    those are some really cool looking spiders btw, thanks.

    Just to point out, this is all subjective goo. In order to sound even remotely sensible someone needs to grab a radar gun or similar and do a cross selection of the various speed demon genuseseses.

    You could clock the running hunters pretty easily. But how about the lightning dash of the crab or lynx spider? What speed does a salticid attain just after launch? We are talking endless speculation here, each according to personal preference and knowledge.
