They're very impressive hunters.

I wonder what the viscosity of the blood is compared to hydraulic fluids used in machines. For machines the viscosity is usually optimal in the range of 10 and 100 mm2/sec, depending on the type of fluid.

I think, because they are so much more intelligent and attune to their existence than other members of their family, that we as humans can connect with them on a more personable level. There is clearly something more than instinct going through these little qt's heads, just watch one for a few minutes and you'll see.

This.
Also it's fuzzy with big round eyes and eyelashes and hops around.

We have Bold Jumping Spiders here, and they get really active this time of year. Every once in a while I'll walk into my room and one will have crawled in through the open window. They hang out on my ceiling and although I hate spiders I never jump or start when I see one. I'm not sure how but I recognize instinctively that it's a cutie jumping spider and not a horrible monster one. They're huge too, as big as a quarter. I catch them and put them outside.

I love how they seem to notice that I'm in the room and will follow my movements with their eyes.

Love Phidippus audax, my house is bascially surrounded by them this time of year.

When i was a kid I caught one and put it in a big glass bottle and fed it flies I stunned and threw in there. It ate readily. I released it after several weeks of this.

Anyone else have the little zebra guys in their window sills?
I think they get in from the outside wall, when windows are open in summer time

Big round eyes that seems to shine, long eyelashes, big fuzzy body for it's kin and body movement will definitely make us feel like they're cute by instinct

Think of it as cute defense, compared to other spiders, these guys are harder to kill because you don't want to kill something this adorable

I so wish to know what is going throughout this spiders mind when this person pets it. Do they have a sense of touch? Would they enjoy a pet?
>>

I love their iridescent fangs.

Not fangs, pedipalps. Here's your (you) anyways.

The full video shows it walking away after a while but the whole time before that the person is petting it. For an arachnid that is so self aware you think it would react sooner than that, this is the whole video.
