Jumping Spiders

Jumping spiders are a species of spider that are active during the daytime. They can be black, brown, tan, or gray and usually have pale to white markings on their body and legs. They have a compact body and have 8 short legs; adults grow to be 1/8th to ¾ of an inch in length. Jumping spiders have excellent eyesight, are very successful predators, and can jump as high as 25 time their own size.
