Jumping spiders - Ligurra latidens from Malaysia

This is a male Ligurra Latidens from malaysia also known as mangrove jumpers.
Not a big jumper, about 7.5mm body length including chelicerae
Innocent and cute looking from the front, but from the top their deadly long chelicerae can be seen nicely folded in half.

See how their chelicerae is used during this spectacular face-off.
