World’s Largest Jumping Spider? Perhaps…
Spotted a Heavy Jumper (Hyllus diardii) on this trip, which was around twice the size of a usual jumping spider. These jumpers can grow to 10-15mm, and extremely hairy. Generally safe to let them jump around on your hands, should be exciting to watch it catch it’s prey!
#1 Heavy Jumper (Hyllus diardii)
#2 A handsome fella, hair nicely combed and standing!
#3 Found this Agave Snout Weevil (Scyphophorus acupunctatus) resting on a leaf. On closer inspection, I found some aphids on it’s abdomen!
#4 I’m just going to take record shots of this guy at various angles. 😛
#5 It appears very flat, but looks like this from above
#6 Front view of the Weevil
#7 Lynx Spider munches on it’s prey. It was just a tiny one, several times smaller than the grasshopper

#9 A blue jumping spider
#10 Lots of poses from jumping spiders! 🙂
