Daily Pet Photography: Jumping Spider

I found this spider in a building lobby and kept it for a couple days and fed it a few worms. These little jumpers make pretty good pets but i let this one go back to nature.

Amazing photo! "Don't Feed the Spiders," most would say, but I love spiders, and this one is so photogenic. :) How cool that you fed it too!

Here's the video i tried taking, the only time these jumpers stay still is while they are eating. Then when you think they are being calm they jump on the camera lens.

Eep! I do love spiders, but the little jumpers really are kinda scary. Great video!! That final segment is especially alarming with the worm getting dragged to the spider's lair (jeans on the floor! How many times have we found spiders under our clothes on the floor??).

*too busy jumping around to bite - I hope you're right. :) I almost never kill spiders. Catch and release. But I can't catch these guys and usually end up crushing them by accident. :(
