Bold Jumping Spider Phidippus audax

Medium-large specimens. 1/3+ inch legspan

No tarantula can compare with the the antics of a jumping spider in terms of entertainment. Studies have been done documenting the "intelligence" of these spiders as they strategize their attacks on prey. You can almost see them thinking as they direct their large eyes back and forth planning their next leap, even series of leaps to their destination.

Coloration and sexes are not guaranteed. Size is half grown or larger. House fly or small crickets are recommended.

Photos of this species can be found on Bugguide, here. Specimens are usually black and white, but not always. Requests for orange ones are honored only if orange specimens are available (uncommonly).

You can see video of this species at the 32:30 mark of the following video from my YouTube Channel:
