Jumping Spider

Dear Becky,
Because they are hunting spiders that do not build webs to snare prey, Jumping Spider in the family Salticidae have excellent eyesight, and they frequently track the movements of humans in their vicinity, making them among the most personable spiders in the world.  The metallic green chelicerae or fangs of this individual are quite striking, leading us to believe this is probably Phidippus audax, the Bold Jumper.

Location: Broomfield, Colorado
