Arachnids are all business 😉

Watch this cute little spider do cute little spider things  ;D

We have a soft spot for jumping spiders, which are members of the largest family of spiders, Salticidae. Not only are they just adorable those big eyes, those bushy eyebrows, all that cute fuzziness but they've got moves like Jagger as well. They also happen to have a lot of other tricks up their sleeves.

Andreas Kay, who took this video below in the rainforest of Ecuador, writes:

Quote
"They do not build a web to trap insects, but jump on their prey and grab it with the jaws. They still produce silk for safety lines while jumping and also to build a tent as shelter from bad weather and to sleep at night. As most spiders, they have four eyes (two pairs) 👀👀, which give them a 360-degree view of the world. Their large frontal eyes are build like telescopes and provide them with very sharp vision. A mobile retina allows them to scan the object they are looking at."

Watch this little guy in action: 🧐
