Those are some awesome pictures!

Does anyone else think jumping spiders are cute?

I catch little jumpers all the time. Those little stripped ones (we call them zebra spiders) The best is when they throw a threat display at you. I think it's hilarious. {D

I really want one, are they in the NY area? I hear they can catch a fly in mid air. Gotta see that one day! ;)

Gothmog, nice photo! :D

I've found that this third salticid is: Salticus scenicus.
I kept them for almost one year. It's not so difficult.

the first one is evarcha arcuata and the second is her male.
the third one looks a bit light on its back so it could also be salticus cingulatus, and that seem to be the case with the fourth zabra as well.
on the page http://www.ntnu.no/vmuseet/nathist/norspider/Pictures.htm
is a photo of the ligther cingulatus (even if the text says scenicus)

i believe i have that species, or a very similar looking one. it laid an egg sac and the babies hatched at now i'm waiting to see what they're going to do. if they grow up well, i could send you some :)
i also have what i believe to be Phidippus johnsoni, and when i caught it she was unbelievably fat, and just recently lost a lot of weight, so she might have laid an eggsac as well.

i find a lot around areas where ppl eat food a lot (picnic tables at work). i think the ppl are messy and then all the bugs that eat human leavings increase in population and then the jumpers find them. there is one picnic table i've seen 2 carolina mantids and 2 dif kind of jumpers on, and never found them anywhere else at work :)

UNBELIEVABLE pics! That CLOSE up is UNREAL. I am still staring :eek:

EXCELLENT pics!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE jumpers! I have 2 right now that are about 1/2" and they have such a personality!!! SO funny! I love to catch them looking around. And it is pretty cool watching them stalk their prey.

They are a *spider* all to their own :)

such beauties! did anyone see the thing on the national geographic channel where they used a robotic image of a jumping spider to communicate with a live jumping spider? they also had the same spider hunting and it used 3 different methods to stalk and kill prey. for each different sized prey the spider used a different method. it was amazing. i think they said that jumping spiders are the most intellegent out of all spiders.
