Jumpy spider

Jumping spiders are known for their jerky movements. They get their name from the way that they attack their prey. They do not spin webs and capture their prey like other spiders do. Jumping spiders are one of the fastest arthropods. Their speed and excellent eyesight allow them to pounce on flies, crickets and even other spiders with amazing accuracy. They are true predators and are able to climb, crawl and leap at their prey and capture it.
