Jumping spiders belong to the family Salticidae. These spiders catch their prey by jumping on them. Species live in many habitats, from leaves lying on the ground, to the tops of trees in the forest, and even way up on Mt. Everest. They are found on every continent in the world except for Antarctica.

At present, 5026 species in 530 genera have been found. They are actually the largest family of spiders, with about 13% of all species.

They often hunt high up in bushes, or on vertical walls. Jumping spiders can jump long distances for their size, as much as 16 cm.

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 08:06:27 -0800

My husband was cleaning up a part of the yard and he called out for me to 'Come'. He handed me a small branch with the loveliest of beetles on it! He said, "I thought you may want to photograph it." He thought right! It was my first time seeing such a beautiful specimen. My photos do not do it justice! Thank you for viewing :)
