Bold or Daring Jumping Spider

Phiddipus audax


This is Lord Green-Fang of the Golden Socks Kingdom. He is a Bold or Daring* Jumping Spider! The giant green mandibles are not actually fangs. They're just his purdy mouth parts Lord Green-Fang is one of many small, harmless friends in the Phidippus audax family! If you see these roaming around either in your yard or home please do not squish them because they're more afraid of you than you are of them. Characteristically known to be extremely charming spiders due to their tiny stature, brilliant coloring and how they interact with humans. They have been known to leap 10 - 50 times their body length! Some people keep them as pets.
