On the edge.

Don't do it little guy, its not worth it!... oh wait, you can jump like 30 times your own height... sure then knock ya self out :)

you know there is no real published data on the height at which these little guys jump to, anecdotal evidence says anywhere from 20 to 80 times their height...


... given all the useless studies carried out today i would have thought a well executed experimental study of the height at which a jumping spider can attain would be a perfect candidate for the budding PHD student needing to bolster their position with further published papers :)
