Family - Salticidae
Genus - Salticus
These Spiders don't make webs but stalk & jump on their prey.
Speedy hunters with amazing eyesight.
They often spot you before you see them!
Often called the Zebra Spider due to their Abdominal markings but this
title could be applied to other Salticids.

I observed her watch the Flies disperse.
She looked distinctly disappointed!
