I love jumping spiders, they've always been my favorite. Whenever I find one, I'll go out of my way to watch it for a minute or two. They're always watching back too.
Thanks for sharing this; very impressive!
Very cool! Jumping spiders rock.
I have never seen anything like that before.. truly incredible.
Ever seen the Portia jumping spider? That spider boggles my friggin mind with it's amazing hunting techniques.
