Phidippus mystaceus

adult male

This is one of the species on that bucket list I created. I can't believe I was able to witness such a crazy cool jumper let alone photograph it!!!! Wow! This particular male was very cooperative and curious. A please to photograph. Thanks again Don @!!!! If your interested in learning more about these awesome creatures and possibly raising one as a pet (really) check out Don's site He is the master of all things phidippus!!!
