Spider Photos - Daring Jumping Spiders

The Daring Jumping Spider is commonly found in gardens and homes. In the garden they can be found on tree trunks, fallen leaves and in ground debris and in homes where they wander in search of prey. They are often seen near windowsills and doorjambs. Daring jumping spiders are large, with males growing  between a quarter and half an inch and females up to ĺ-inch.  Their bodies are black or brown, stocky and hairy. The abdomen is marked with a white cross band and several grey or white spots. The chelicerae (the part containing the fangs) are a noticeable metallic green and this is the best way to identify this jumping spider. The name "Jumping" spider comes from the behaviour of the male, who "jumps" during mating if the female approaches too quickly. These spiders like sunshine and do their hunting during the day. They walk with an irregular gait and leap on their prey and often eat other spiders as well as insects. Their excellent eyesight aids them in stalking prey, and their large appetites make them a beneficial resident of the garden. Even though they do not spin webs, jumping spiders can always be seen attached to a line of silk that protects them from falling should they miss their prey. The female uses this silk to make a retreat where she produces her egg sac and tends to it until the spiderlings hatch and disperse. Although scary looking, these spiders are not harmful to humans. Here's some photos sent in by viewers.

I just found this spider on a clothes pin on my clothes line in the back yard. I scooped him up and took some photos because I have never seen anything like it in Ukiah, CA. It is very striking and beautiful! About 1" long. After searching some on-line sites, I found yours. I'm pretty sure this guy (gal?) is a Daring Jumping Spider. I let it loose in the yard and would like to find him again to put him in the vegetable garden for pest deterrence. What do you think? Thanks for any info. Trudy Morgan Ukiah, CA.

I was out fishing and saw this little guy trying to catch a wasp. I felt bad and put a cricket near him. Watching the attack was actually really cool! And I got a few photos of him eating and carrying away the cricket to boot! While I have never been scared of spiders, I have also never been just super fond of them. By the time he scurried away, we were buds(: !

Hey Glen, Found this spider on a coiled garden house sitting on my patio table. I live in the Western suburbs of Chicago and was hoping you could ID it. You can see slightly it had a bright teal on its underneath and a few times raised onto its hind legs when I approached to snap the photo. It was about the size of a pencil eraser or so- not too large but big bodied.

hi, its been a bit again, but i want to thank you and your website. thanks to your site i have found a better understanding of spiders and have been working on my own on trying to get over my arachniphobia. first i looked at all photos and kept looking until the heeby jeebies went away. then i started taking good looks at each photo and thinking about things i LIKE about the spider in the photo... this has really helped me change my perspective on them. after that ive been working my way up through taking photos to keeping one as a pet to then holding a few by glove and today i even picked one up bare hand and actually enjoyed it. i just want to say thanks for the help, i am not fully over it, as some species im still freaked out by, but i LOVE jumping spiders the best. it was a daring jumper that i held today, found her lost in our hallway in our apartment building. took her in to keep her safe until i release her in the morning, gave her a small jar with a rolled up piece of paper to hide in, some willow sticks and i gave her a few drops of water from a medicine dropper, which she actually liked. just held the dropper in front of her and let one drop sit on the end of it and she lifted her head up and held it with the feeler arms on the front and she drank 2 drops. it was a neat experience. i caught her a mosquito to snack on for the night and tomorrow morning i will release her. ive enjoyed her and i was glad she was a mellow individual and was curious and friendly. thank you! i have a better out look on spiders now and i think i can say i have a general caution of most of them rather than a fear. now i am more often to be surprised and calm when a spider finds their way on me and i just gently take them off and put them somewhere safe where as before i freaked out and screamed lol it has really helped so thank you so very much. i worry the jumper bite may be painful but its easy to read if theyre ticked off. they seem to be curious about things and dont seem to mind to be held as long as you dont grab them, they will climb right on your hand without issues, and i feel a bit more confident about that now. they interest me now rather than scare me. so thank you. some photos of the experience of my little girly friend are attached. she is a big girl. you can use them if you choose to. i found her quite adorable and friendly.

This spider was found on a lemon tree in my back yard. It was about one 1/2 inch by one 1/2 inch in size and just chilled out and let us handle it and then after it even posed on a business card for a couple of minutes. I put him back outside on the lemon tree, and a few hours later I came out to check to see if it was there and he had made a little hidey hole in the crook of the tree. Pretty cool. Love the blue/green shimmer. Eric, Ceres Ca

Hello, it's been awhile Got a new SLR camera and got some photos, one surprised me as it is a Orchard Weaver variety. He was very pretty, though lucky he was small. My fiance's brother thought he was a black widow and wanted to kill him but he couldnt find the tiny guy so he is safe :) the other is a jumping spider variety (not sure which) one is a daring jumping spider (i love these guys, they have so much personality and are just adorable...) the other i am not sure what he is, i am still browsing the site to ID him also, I just watched Myth Busters, thankfully it's nice to know the myth about the daddy long legs is just that, a MYTH :D but they still give me the heebie jeebies.... all them legs thanks again :D Casey

Hi Glen, I'm hoping that you can identify this spider for me. From afar it looks black but up close it's dark brown. As you can see in one of the photos, I have a lid to a babies bottle over the top of the spider, so it is quite small. I don't know if this is the actual size of the spider or if its a young one. The front legs are like pincers. We live in Gungahlin Canberra. I'm originally from North Queensland and haven't seen these spiders before either inside a house or outside. When we first moved into the house in Canberra they were everywhere inside. They can easily climb walls and plastic containers. Please help as we have 2 cats a dog and a 3 year child, so i'm concerned if they are even slightly venomous. We have multitudes of wolf and huntsman spiders inside the house as well, and quite a few adult white tailed (don't know what a baby one looks like) spiders as well that come inside the house. I normally capture the wolf and huntsmans and put them outside, but the white tails and not so lucky. Thanks for your help. :-) Trishi

I've visited your site several times in search of spider identification. Ive taken several pictures of spiders around my home and thought Id share this one with you. I found this little guy wandering around during the day on my porch close to Knoxville TN. He was surprisingly friendly and extremely curious. I was lucky enough to get this fantastic picture of him perched on top of a glass. Some research led me to believe he might be a jumping spider? (Plus the fact he jumped right off the glass after he had finished examining me) he had a beautiful turquoise coloring underneath his fangs, which were very small compared to his size. Also, his eye sight seemed to be better than most spiders. With any little move I would make, he would push himself up on his front legs and stare at me for several seconds.

Hello Glen, One of these little guys I believe is a breed of jumping spider(pics "inthecorner" and "staredown"). I came to this conclusion because of how the little guy kept stopping every foot or so and turning his head toward me, like he was saying "what do you want?". Cute little fellow. Anyway, hope you enjoy these... was fun shooting them. Thanks Zack

Glen, We caught this little guy after I brought a box in that was shipped to us. We decided to keep him as he or she had interesting markings. We looked up what species he was and what they eat. We named it Curivis after one of the ingredients we use in our plant. We fed Curivis crickets and kept a sponge wet for the last few weeks. This morning when we came in to work, we noticed the web and two orange things in the web. We are wondering what this can be? And is Curivis a male or female spider? Great web site by the way!!

Hi there. I live in Northern Utah and have a number of spiders come inside to visit. We keep the jumpers since we also seem to have Yellow Sacs and Sowbug eaters. I managed to get a few good shots with the macro setting on a digital point and shoot. I know two are jumpers (and one refused to hold still), but Iím not really sure of the big one. I was hoping for an ID there. The second one is a jumper, but a tiny one. It was looking a little thin so I gave it some water out my hand, but it wouldnít hold still for the picture. This little guy was maybe ľ inch long, if he stretched. Bill

This little one was crawling around on a tree in the backyard. Stretched fully out, it would probably have covered a dime....Seemingly a willing little model.

Hi, I found this spider at work climbing up a tool bench. We work servicing equipment that is shipped from all over the world, so I have no idea what box it might have originated from. It definitely does not look native to our Milton, Vermont facility, though. The body is about Ĺ inch and the legs are about an inch tip to tip. There is a white trapezoid on the back, orange markings along the sides, and two white stripes on the underside. The palps are concealing a bright metallic green chelicerae. The legs have white bands and the body is covered with short hairs giving it a fuzzy appearance. It is not the fastest spider Iíve come across. Hopefully, you can help me get an id for the spider, as Iíve never seen anything like it in this area. Thanks, Scot

Glen, Thought you might like this closeup of a (assumedly) male daring jumping spider. Please excuse the quality, I only had a cameraphone to shoot with. I thought he was sort of a cute little bugger. I found him in Schenectady, NY and he was nice enough to pose for the photo, and then being an inquisitive little guy decided to jump on my cellphone and check things out. He then jumped back onto the window I found him on and just sat there with a cute look on his face. Dave R.

Hi Glen - I've attached pics of a spider I find in and around my house in Sacramento, CA. He's black, fuzzy, pretty small, and is a good jumper. I have been unable to identify him so far. If you do figure out what he is, would you please let me know? You can use the pictures on your website if you like. He's got some kind of crud (dust? dirt? disease?) on his back and if I see another one of his type, I'd be happy to send a better picture.
Thanks!

Could you please tell me what it is. It is black, about a little over 1 inch, it had some hair and three white dots on it's back one big spot with two smaller dots side by side below the larger dot. Thanks,
Pauline

Hi,

This picture was taken in Dallas, Texas. Is it the Phidippus Audax? What is the blue body part?

Thank-you,

Eleanor Burt
