On several occasions I have seen what appears to be huntsman spiders in our local environment. These are runners and I've seen them zooming down the roads at night.

These spiders run in spurts of up to 2 to 4 feet then freeze. They always dash, and don't seem to have any other speed. When they start to move, they always jump vertically 1 to 2 inches, then literally hit the ground running.

Has anyone ever encountered this trait?
