Phidippus audax!

I just caught myself a jumping spider out here in central Texas. Not sure what type it is, but its fairly large (1/4" body length at the moment) with an overall tan body. It does have some nice orange and white markings contrasted with a thick black line on its abdomen, though. Im temporarily keeping it in a tall acrylic box, measuring 1.5"x1.5"x3.5", and it seems adjusted. I was lucky enough to watch it hunt down a small cricket earlier today :).

I had to upload this video of my little jumper chomping down. It appeared to be Phidippus arizonensis or possibly Phidippus carolinensis from what I found online.
I did let the little guy go today though. Hopefully it can find a mate and make more. :)

Loving the music you put with it
