    I'd never be allowed a jumping spider, my husband is scared of spiders, he says, but he's ok with Itsy as she's slow and docile!

    I love jumping spiders, by far my favorite spiders (probably not the best thing to say on a tarantula forum.. XD) My favorite species is Phidippus audax, their chelicerae are so pretty.

    They have such an inquisitive face. :3 And they're so fuzzy!
