    Since I started keeping T's, I've noticed that I pay more attention to the various "creatures" I come across while in the great outdoors. I occasionally collect a few for short periods of time. Anyway, I collected a very interesting spider last week and have kept it in a deli container. As soon as I caught her she started building a network of webs for an egg case. I don't have a decent enough camera to take a good shot of her, but some educated guesses might lead me to some pics that I can use to compare her to.

    Small spider approximately 1.5cm in body length.

    I believe she may be a species of "jumping spider."

    She has a brown base color with lighter "beige" markings flanking the carapace and abdomen.

    Her first set of legs are much thicker than any other set.

    I live in Northern Kentucky

    I know this isn't much to go on, but if you have any guesses, I'll search for photos and compare. I'll post here if I find a match.
