Yeah it was one itsy bitsy ant. Just by my eye, I couldn't tell what his prey was. Until I saw the photos.

Nice catch you have there ;) The jumper looks pretty tiny!

Omri, are talking about the last image? Cause I know that one isn't. The first are though. I mean it even jumped away.

I wasn't talking about the last image. I think some spiders that are not called "jumping spiders" can jump. This is a pic of mine (of the same spider) that shows it isn't a jumper:

Very interesting!! How large is that spider you just put up? I really thought this was a jumper. I mean, that is how he got around, by jumping. But I guess I was wrong.

My guess for the first species is Lynx spider. Nice catch!

Neat shots- Omri's correct the first spider isn't a jumper. They have 4 eyes in a row at the front with one pair being very large.

Nice shots Revert, I have to agree that shot #1 isn't a jumper, the eye arrangement is completely wrong. Most spiders are pretty good at jumping as well (when they have to at least). The last one doesn't look very nice, reminds me of the Sydney Funnel Web spider - how big was he (looks like a he because of the size or the palps, and they seem to come to sharp claws at the end as well, which are both male traits). The abdomen though is unusually swollen for a male. Did he have any webs around, and was he climbing?

I'd be a bit cautious around the 2nd spider.

I was actually thinking Redback or some other sort of black widow, but the thorax is way too flattened for that. Doesn't quite look like a funnel web either - they are a lot hairier. I'm at a loss. I'd hazard a guess and say it aint from OZ.

Thanks for all the info, I had no idea about the nonjumping spider. Yeah the second one is very large. Larger than any black widow spider that I have seen. He was walking on a rock, going towards his tunnel web. So you are correct about the tunnel part. He looked pretty dangerous, so I didn't stick around to find out.

Interesting. Could be a mouse spider of some sort. Given the looks of him, and your description of both size, and his home, he sounds like a primitive, and they usually have the most dangerous and toxic venom from my experience.

I would strongly suggest making an effort to identify him, just to make sure.

I sent an email to a guy over at spiderzrule.com to help get an ID on this guy, hope you don't mind but I emailed him the image to help with the ID process!

Cheers,

Dave
