    Looks like a type of 'jumping spider'. Most winters I have one patrolling the office for the random fungus gnat or other small critters I'm not aware of. When I have a minute, I'd offer him a WFF & see him in attack mode. They're pretty impressive. Of course, then I imagine what would happen if I was the size of the WFF ...

    Sadly, this is the 1st year in quite a few that none have appeared.
    All the best,
    Ron

    cool looking spider! Like a mini tarantula.
    I watched a jumping spider trying to get a fly one time but it wasn't fast enough. The fly kept coming back to the same spot after each attack.

    Sweet, a mini T! The second image isn't the same spider though is it? I don't see any bristles.

    I caught a small gray spider with orange spots on it's rump and put it in the Anoles viv but haven't seen it since. I suppose the Anole had dinner. LOL

    That's a cute lil' spider!


    I once watched a small jumping spider catch a housefly twice it's size. She jumped, caught, bit and hung on. That was quite a wrestle!
