Semi-coppered Heavy Jumper- Hyllus cf. semicupreus ♀

Look who I bumped into again today hehe ^_^

 

A cute female Semi-coppered Heavy Jumper, very easy to recognized due to her size, the two "horns" on the head and of course, the apparent white band across the "face".

 

These spiders can be found all the way to India, thanks to their amazing adaptability. Unlike most other large spiders, these spiders were able to live together with humans (in their gardens and parks), thus gaining access to a lot more food, especially flies!

 

By the way, did I mention these spiders are some of the nicest to photograph? They are always so tame and cooperative.... maybe they are just being lazy XD
