Lol that's awesome They're not quite out and about here. I've had 2 people tell me they saw them but i can't find any yet.i was at a picnic last weekend and it was warm. there was a little jumper on the table i was sitting at. me and my cousins boyfriend were feeding the little guy aphids. he was like a begging dog. looking up at us for the next little morsel. lol thought it was awesome! .....sorry to go off on a tangent, just thought it was relivent
I have 2, i got a aviculara pink toe and he jumps sometimes and he is very dosile. I got a rose hair and he's easy to handle and take care of. I will post pic's later.I believe most of them only live about a year,
Info varies some sites say 11-14 months others say 3-5 years.
Most say approx. a year.
A one-year life cycle is typical of jumping spiders. The most common species spend the winter as a nearly full-grown but still immature stage; some other species mature in fall. During the cold months they are usually found in a silken retreat that they construct in sheltered sites. The spiders mature in spring; males usually mature a couple of weeks before females.
Your tarantulas should live much longer then this we were talking about these little guysI have 2, i got a aviculara pink toe and he jumps sometimes and he is very dosile. I got a rose hair and he's easy to handle and take care of. I will post pic's later.
Is it true that the males are black and white in a lot of these species?Here he is, or she maybe. Very simple enclosure, all they need is a place to make their web hide so I glued a stem of fake leaves in the corner. I'll let him settle in for a few days then bring in a roach to feed him.

yep from all i've been able to find on them the females are rarely away from the hide except to eat. Males roam and most common to be found. Like my little guy Popeye is a great name, thanks Mass!Its true in the case of P audax, for sure. The males of this sp are easily discernable by the Popeye front legs. Females are shorter legged, no big muscles, fat bodied. And much less easy to find, most of the time. I guess even female jumpers are fond of the hide, I see them very rarely.
