    I've heard they live about 1,5-3 years.

    They make great orbwebs and the web is really POWERFUL.

    Breeding is a slight problem, males are very small and are often seen as food. The slings are very very small an numerous, but I've heard they do we'll in captivity.

    They feed on anything flying or crickets that fly with help from a hand...:)

    I guess mine is a wildcaught female, and that means that she's probably gravid. And that's nice...:)

    Thank's again! I love her too..:)

    Your spider looks great, they can live longer if you make them grow slower by giving them less food but they will shed and grow after a certain amount, yours looks like it just molted but if it was wild caught it still might make egg casses. i just released about 50 jumping spiders and im waiting for 2 Nephila egg casses to hatch, they take longer to hatch then smaller spiders.
    :D
