Bold jumper (male)

Phidippus audax


12 mm long male jumping spider


Semi rural


Relocated from the ceiling in our laundry room because he was sending the cats crazy & they were climbing all over the cabinets trying to knock him down! He's now hanging out among the leaves of one of our houseplants.

Ahmed, yes I am sure he gets a good workout on our ceiling!
Guion, they do occasionally give a little nip but their bite isn't particularly painful!

Always loved these little guys! They're cute! I have seen 2 in my house the last 2 days. What is their bite like? If any?
