This is Bean. She is a Regal Jumping Spider (Phidippus regius). I’ve had her since she was very wee. She amazes me every single day with her quirkiness and curiosity. I happen to think she’s the cutest spider on the planet… but I’m a tad biased. I can’t stop taking photos of her though… that face!!!
AS: SO CUTE!

So I bought this tarantula sling but I’m horrible at remembering names and I can’t remember what species it is. I know it’s a birdeater of some sort, but whenever I google different species of birdeaters all I get are results for Goliath birdeaters. Any ideas? Thanks :)
AS: actually that looks more like a greenbottle blue tarantula, in terms of coloration and patterning. The pattern also resembles a brazilian pink bird eating tarantula, if it looses the pattern on it’s abdomen when it gets older than it’s that, the blue suggests to me that it is a greenbottle or maybe a Pamphobeteus nigricolor but spiderlings can look vastly different from an adult, hope that helps!

Found this little guy when I brought up some boxes from the basement. Let him loose in my garage. Any idea what I unleashed upon the pests there? :)
AS: that looks like an english cross spider, despite their name they are found all over north america, though it’s hard to tell what kind of cross spider it is due to the quality of the photos

Hello! me and my father wanted to know what kind of spider was the one from this picture, I told him I’d ask here haha :D we’re from Chile. 
AS: it’s a little hard to tell given that the abdomen isn’t very well lit but it’s either a White-tailed/tip spider Lampona cylindrata or some kind of parson’s spider :)

Okeydokey, hopefully both pictures will show up but here are some cute little jumping spiders from around my house! At least I think they are. I’m honestly terrified of spiders, but I just can’t resist taking their pictures! And If I’m not bugging you I have a couple more pictures of our eight-legged friends I’d love to submit and get IDs for~
(wow that was a lame pun)
AS: the top one is a Tan Jumping Spider Platycryptus undatus female and the bottom image I’m pretty sure is a Wattle Jumping Spider Sandalodes scopifer

Here’s one of my 3 Holothele incei slings.  They’re adorable little things, even if they stay in their webbing tunnels all the time.
AS: what a cutie! great shot!
