    Just saw this thread and thought Id contribute as well.
    More than anything, I see large yellow sac spiders trying to invade my pitchers.

    It would be nice to see a jumper Visit my pitchers, but they seem to like finding their way inside
    my house more often than any other spider. Sometimes, they reach the diameter of a quarter.
    I sometimes notice them only because because I can hear them walking on the walls at that point.
    They remind me of beefy, furry angry gorilla spiders.

    Heres a (by average) smaller one I found last year inside.
    He was roughly the size of a finger pad.

    Nice pics.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    Nice shots, everyone. What amazes me about jumping spiders is that they are one of the very few spider groups that actually have good vision and you can tell by the way they respond to things around them. 'Makes them look kind of intelligent to me. I also love the colors some have.

    Those iridescent fangs certainly are unique. It's no match for the peacock spider though!

    I wish that was my picture. Unfortunately, I've never seen one and they don't even live in this country.

    There were a few tests / studies done wtih spiders, predatorial insects, and common bugs.
    Their main goal was to measure the intellegence of your general insects. Mazes, hunting, simple problem solving.
    They found that spiders, mantids, centipedes and wasps ranked highest on the scales,
    With jumping spiders within the top percentage of all tests.
    Spiders mostly.
