What is this?? Looks like a spider but it has numerous antennae so I don’t know what it is
This is a Jumping Spider in the family Salticidae, and they are considered harmless to humans. Based on the green chelicerae and the markings, we believe your Jumping Spider is a Bold Jumper, Phidippus audax, a highly variable species which is pictured on BugGuide. What you have mistaken for numerous antennae are actually the legs of some Arachnid prey, perhaps a Harvestman in the order Opiliones.
