Ours isn't GIANT giant, it's just a lot bigger than the ones I normally see.

Salticid courtship is amazing to watch. There's one researcher studying the acoustics of it -- he'd immobilize a female stuck to an insect pin in the middle of a taught sheet of nylon, then he'd let the male come in and do his thing. With vibration sensors attached to the nylon he could pick up the male's drumming as sound.

It was like the little guy was doing a flamenco dance! Very Happy

i saw some pretty cool footage of jumping spiders, they took one that feeds primarily on human blood (by eating mosquitos) thy put 2 pictures on a computer screen one was filled with blood, so it was slightly red, 9 times out of ten they chose the right one, he also managed to communicate with them using a c.g.i spider which was kool, oh and another kind that only eats other spiders was gunna climb the web of another spider to eat it, but the other spider was too alert so it walked around it climbed up a tree, then bungee jumped down infront of the spider and ate it, they have used them to proove spiders are actually inteligent, they now think jumpers are atleast as intelligent as small mammals which is amazing Very Happy

Usually. I think they may use their first pair of legs sometimes, as well.
