Hi guys what is the worlds largest jumping spider?
Hyllus cf giganteus is a contender for that title This female shouldn't be fully grown yet.
Wow Erik that's an awesome jumper. Huge and awesome coloration.
WOW!That is so cool!
Where is this species found?I was always under the impression some of the largest jumpers were located here in the USA..
I WANT ONE lol. How did u acquire that beauty.
I saw a black one bigger then this when I was in mexico, although iam not too sure on the species.
very beautiful coloration you have there.
This species is from Java, Indonesia.
how did u get it?
I love the ending to this video. Nice dramatic exit!
Very nice...I would own one of those in a heartbeat!
Well, that reopens the possibility of what I saw downtown having been an extremely large jumper. I was astonished at its size but didn't grab a coke bottle quickly enough to catch it before it vanished in a puff of smoke.
Well, our jumpers may not be the very largest in the world but we do have some doozies. I've seen P. audax monstrosities that were about 1" DLS. That's not as large as the spider shown above but still pretty big... for a jumper. I think there is a Phiddipus spp out west that gets even bigger.
That was a great video Erik. Thanks for sharing it.
Erik got those beauties from me
The largest is officially Hyllus diardii, with Phidippus octopunctatus supposedly a very close second
although my Phidippus regius AF is about as big as a fully grown Hyllus cf giganteum
/\/\ Wow!! That was pretty awesome!
haha, the first video was a beautiful specimen, i would love to own one...the second video was very beautiful too but he looked so angry lol like..."why for you take the cameraz away"
do you guys know where I can buy some of those big jumping spiders ?
Sweet! Always loved the salticids...but the local ones are so tiny!
That IS awesome! :?:worship:
that Hyllus diardi is awesome!
Where can I find these big jumping spiders for sale in the US? :?
