Fringed Jumping Spider



Most spiders will only bite humans in self-defense, and few produce worse effects than a mosquito bite or bee-sting.

Most of those with medically serious bites, such as recluse spiders and widow spiders, are shy and bite only when they feel threatened, although this can easily arise by accident. defensive tactics are aggressive and their venom, although they rarely inject much, has resulted in 13 known human deaths.[81] On the other hand, the Brazilian wandering spider requires very little provocation.

There were about 100 reliably reported deaths from spider bites in the 20th century

So be Careful 😛      We can’t be spider man  😀

  1. UGH – was feeling safe until you said “on the other hand…” Yik. They are so frightful to view.

    • Hey Mary.. It may be Portia fimbriata species spider, commonly known as fringed jumping spider. It is common in tropical countries like India.
