Oh my gosh!! Please on't jump on me!! AWESOME macro Shirley!! <>< #11700752

Shirley D. Freeman level-deluxe May 16, 2018

Thank you, Nancy. They are pretty much harmless, but if you should get bit by one, it only causes some discomfort and itching for a day or so, from what I have read about the Bold Jumping Spider, and they are quite helpful to the environment as well. This is a female, from what I understand. <>< #11700756
