Thanks for letting me know, 5Cats! Your comment sure did make me wonder. :) Normally I don`t like spiders at all, but that book helped me enjoy jumping spiders at least, so it came to mind.

@Wendypants: I did indeed read that book! But I just love bugs in general. I`ve come to specialize over the years because there`s just so many - I try to focus on ones I can find in Manitoba:
Dragonflies
Jumping Spiders
Jewel Beetles
various moths and butterflies...
Pseudoscorpions! (they live in my house!)

5Cats, you don`t happen to have a thing for jumping spiders because of the Xanth novels do you? (the one where Dor gets transported into a tapestry?) I like them too, but from a distance; not that close and not one that big!

When I was a boy I used to love collecting and handling insects (and you wouldn`t believe the amount of times that just came out as the typo `insest`).... I don`t know what happened between then and now but over the years i`ve become a real pussy around things like moths, spiders, and slugs.

Especially the moths, if I`ve seen one in the room before I go to sleep, I have to have witnessed it dying before I can soundly nod off. I`ve squished that many with my favourite astronomy book it looks like it`s been bound in gold leaf.

Crakr: Not a fiddle-back. I`m convinced this one`s a fiddlefront spider.

donk: That was likely a brown recluse spider, aka fiddleback spider.

These days (after being in the hospital) I don`t take any chances, they all get squashed.

@donk: I`d say that`s more like an allergic reaction than the venom itself. Almost all "jumping spiders" are very small, it`s hard to imagine getting bitten by one BUT of course it is possible.

Just like bee stings: if you`re not allergic it`s no big deal. But if you ARE then it could be lethal.

Giant Centipede bites: (for example) their venom will harm humans for sure, but not permanently or fatally (unless you`re allergic, then it`s 100% deadly).

Harmless my ass I got bit on the elbow by a jumping spider on saturday and my elbow swelled up twice it normal size. I got cellulitis, joint and wrist pain along with nausea. I went to the doctor and he said it should subside in 5 days so they are far from harmless. They rarely bite humans unless the are threatened. In my case I got bit when I was asleep and I found the little bugger dead on my floor the morning I got bit

Well, after reading CrakrJak`s info, I`ll admit I think he (or she) looks rather cute--as spiders go.

Had to do some reading but most all of these jumping spiders are not harmful to humans.

They are carnivorous and eat many different kinds of insects, but don`t build webs.

I just crapped my pants. If I had been the person in that shirt, the incident would have been on the evening news.
