Salticid spiderlings inside a tube of pine needles lined with silk. They all refused to leave the case even after it was ripped open, so I assume they had to harden up their exoskeletons for another day or two. Zolfo Springs, Florida.
Remembering my little Phidippus regius male, Sting! He was not yet an adult and boy did he love food at this instar. That abdomen swelled like a grape. He grew to be huge, the largest of all my jumpers! He had lots of babies from breeding projects.
💚🕷 This gorgeous #salticid came out to play, while I was visiting friends in Comfort, TX! These beauties always delight me with their quirky interactions, not to mention their gentle beauty. 💙🕸 Those chelicerae shine like gems! 💎😍
