Jumping Spiders, Family Salticidae
These active daylight hunters are some of the more colorful spiders, especially the males who have to display to the females before mating. Unlike most spiders, jumpers have excellent eyesight and stealthily stalk their prey like a cat. They will also peer up to look at an observing human. They can leap over 20 times their body length and actually pluck flies out of midair. They are a favorite group to study by many arachnologists.
