How to Play with Your Jumping Spider
Open the cage of your jumper and gently coax him onto your hand.If he is hiding somewhere and is resting, do not touch him.
Let him crawl where he wants to go.If you try to pick him up between your fingers, you will scare him, resulting in him trying to get away.
Give him a meal while you are playing with him.He will appreciate it.
Let him roam around on the ground while you're at it.Keep an eye on him, though.
Enjoy your jumper!
QuestionWhere can I find a jumping spider?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf you live in a warmer climate, you can find them outside, in your window sill, on trees, or in the grass. Be careful when looking!Thanks!
QuestionI have one, but I don't know how to wash their home. How can I do this?IddabieCommunity AnswerIt is simple and easy. Coax the spider into a smaller container, and secure it. Set him aside while you change the main container's substrate. If you have leaves, consider replacing them with fresh ones every few days. Wipe the walls with a damp paper towel to remove any string web. If it's time to give him water, spray a little onto a wall, then let him back in.Thanks!
QuestionI keep 3 zebra spiders in tubs with sand. I looked at them in a tube and all 3 were cuddled up with each other. What were they doing? And what do I feed them?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThey might have been scared. They eat insects and smaller spiders.Thanks!
QuestionCan he hit me or make damage to me?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerHe shouldn't be hurt you unless it feels threatened and bites you.Thanks!
QuestionIs dirt from my backyard OK for a jumping spider's cage?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes it can be as long as it is healthy and not very grainy and dry. If it is dry you will need to moisten it with some water.Thanks!
QuestionIs there a plant they prefer?IddabieCommunity AnswerA safe bet is to decorate its container with the same plants you found it in or near. Be sure to check the plants for any hitchhiking bugs first. Sticks and leaves are great, and maybe a small rock (secure it in the dirt so it can't squish your spider). Be sure to change out dying leaves and plants every few days.Thanks!
QuestionIs it possible for jumping spiders to swim in water?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerNo, they cannot swim and will drown. They can get out of shallow containers with a ledge, but it is not possible for them to swim in water more than 3-4 inches deep.Thanks!
