I have only seen these around Halloween time & the rear looks like a pumpkin with a ski mask on. Any ideas ? He acts very vicious so yes he’s in a zip lock bag
Despite the diffusion because of the plastic bag, we can still identify this Bold Jumper, Phidippus audax, because of the green fangs and orange spot on the abdomen. The Bold Jumper is a highly variable species, but the green fangs are an identifying feature. You can see additional photos of Bold Jumpers on the UC Irvine Natural History website. Though they are quite bold and fearless, Bold Jumpers are not dangerous to humans.
