nanofishology:

Another video of my spider friend from last week. What a sweetheart. I think this is a bold jumper. Definitely lives up to the name, I would say.

I FINALLY FOUND MY BOLD JUMPER VIDEO! 

This was me meeting my first ever jumping spider, who interrupted me while I was trying to write my master’s thesis.  Babe just came up to me while I was typing, and started doing this. And yes… uh… this is how I interact with strange animals I’ve never encountered before. These spiders are SO curious, and indeed, so BOLD.

There are TWO MORE videos!
Video #2, more playful jumping [link]
Video #3, I didn’t record the part where the spider jumped ONTO me, and crawled onto my back, but… there was a spider on my back [link]

Video from summer 2016, Posted July 5, 2019

hey I saw a spider today and thought of you. tried getting a picture but it jumped away. it was black and had a big fat body with little white spots on it

Phidippus audax? I love those guys. They were my childhood favorite spider. As a baby, I used to call them (and all spiders) pashu. My parents would take me on “pashu tours” of the house and I was always most delighted by P. audax.

This Bold Jumper has been living in my house ever since she ran inside with a moth she caught on my back door. For a while, she was hiding behind a bookcase, but then she spent a couple days wandering around the ceiling before finally coming down into the curtains. Not sure she’s finding too much, I need to start turning on the UV porch light again and letting in more caddisflies!
