I caught a jumping spider and put it in here. It is not quite a quarter of an inch in size. They live roughly a year before they complete their cycle of life. This is small enough that I can take it with me in the Casita, watch and feed it on my travels. It should keep me company.

Sorry about the picture being sideways. Wish that I knew how to get it out of landscape mode.

I transfered your picture to my desk top, rotated it right side up and re-posted it here. I'm not computer savy but this seems to work, (MacBook Air laptop)

Dutchman,
Thanks for the correction. I am posting off an iPhone and that may be the reason for the sideways photos. Thanks again.

I cant get my pictures to stand upright either. I worked my fool head off trying to get my profile picture upright and could trick the website into it. Dutchman, if you can hook a brother up I would greatly appreciate it. I can PM you the picture if necessary?

I have a Sony camera that, if I take photos vertically, it will only attach or insert onto a webpage that way. I don't know about phones, so, but  maybe, if you try to take a photo with the phone turned horizontally, maybe it would work.

 

Darn it, where is a teenager when you need one?

As for the jumping spider? They can be escape artists. One day I put a rather handsome one, a red and black one, in my terrarium, and within half an hour, it had scaled the glass wall of the bowl and escaped.

They're fairly intelligent, too. Next time you find one, especially the little gray and white ones, take a small mirror and put it in front of the spider. I did that not long ago and got FOUR reactions from the same spider. Between each reaction I lifted the mirror and then replaced it i front of the spider.  First one: raised its forelegs into a V shape, which is how the communicate with another spider. Next, it backed off, and just stared at its reflection. Third reaction: it approached the mirror and touched it. Fourth, and most amazing...it ran around the BACK of the mirror to find that other spider.

 

Now I imagine there are folks out their eeking in dismay. Fear of spiders is VERY common in us naked apes. But I find them fascinating. If they're in my house, I'll catch them and release them outside.  (the best way to catch one is..honest to pete, using a cardboard cone shaped party hat.) It's probably why my mother would shake her head (after shrieking) and say I wasn't right. Well,  I'll own it.

Meadowlark,
I went to the pet store to get mine something to eat (little crickets), when I got home, the bigger male had gotten out and was sitting on the side of the terrarium and the littler female was gone with the wind. I am going to name them Houdini and Scarlett. LOL
I will have to try the mirror. The jumpers are considered to be very intelligent. It will be fun having it around. I want to measure his size and track his growth. That may be a future reference of age for the next one. This will be another interesting journey.

Like this?  I transfer pix from my iPhone to my laptop regularly.  Once on my laptop I move it out on my desktop, then click it and when it comes up again I use the "rotate"on  the upper right side to turn it around and around if needed. If this is good enough for you, fine, otherwise, yes you can pm me.

My wife tried that mirror trick on me a few years back....I never did find myself when I went behind the mirror.   LOL!

You can rotate and crop photos on your iPhone, or iPad.

Im pretty sure you can do it on an Android phone, too.
