The Jumpy Spider

One of the most interesting spiders in the world is the jumping spider.  With over 5000 species described, these spiders are known to have a small body size with jumping skills used for moving to surfaces and pouncing on prey.  Unlike most spiders that have terrible vision, these spiders have excellent vision and are commonly seen in gardens, homes, and woods.  All jumping spiders have four pairs of eyes.

    So, ironically, this spider sees better with less eyes! 😮

    I used to see these all the time as a kid. It’s been a while since I’ve seen one now. Thanks for the reminder!
