    Wow, that is so cool! I love how they names it the Peacock Jumping Spider- with colors like that! I wouldn't have expected something that exotic looking to be found in the UK though.

    Very beautiful and exotic looking spider! Shame their mainly a UK species though, I would love to be able to go out and catch and observe these gorgeous arachnids.

    I'm terrified of spiders, but must admit the markings are gorgeous. The link does say though, that the spider is found in Australia not the UK (phew!)

    XD Seems I misread it... anything is possible on sleep deprivation.. either way, unfortunately no America for these little critters... Though the southern US, or parts of it, does have a species of Camel Spiders that I eventually want to hunt down and observe... they can be hard to though seeing as they can be rather jumpy and run at 10 mph tops

    You are braver than I am Plex! I practically faint at the sight of a common UK garden spider! Can't stand them, no idea why!

    Haha well a lot of people have that view about spiders or that fear, I'm just one of the odd ones that will don (thick) gloves and boots and catch camel spiders if the opportunity arises, and maybe keep one in a giant tank. XD

    A pretty spider but I must say I have never seen one of those yet.
