Jumping Spiders are part of the Salticidae family. In recent years, they have become a popular domestic pet for those who like to keep exotic and unusual creatures. Jumping Spiders are intelligent and can be great fun to keep as pets. However, be aware that these spiders do bite but only as a defense mechanism, so handle them with care.If you are in a country where Jumping Spiders live in the wild you can, in theory, find one in your local area for free. Some people will say this is unethical because wild creatures should be left in the wild. The flip side of this however is that you may be giving the Jumping Spider an easier and longer life than it may have in the wild if you keep it in the optimum conditions. Let's face it, in the wild they are at risk of dying at a young age either by being attacked by a predator, lack of food being available or due to extreme weather conditions. Indeed, some people take in Jumping Spiders purely for the winter and release them again when the warmer months arrive. This book teaches you everything you need to know to make you a happy spider owner and make your spider a happy pet. Covered in this book: -Buying your spider-Care-Common Medial Conditions-Costs-Enclosures-Feeding-Handling-Health-Molting-Most popular species as pets-One spider or more?-Settling in-Waterand much moreI hope you will enjoy spending time with your Jumping Spider

Australians have a love–hate relationship with spiders. Some spiders, such as the Redback and the Sydney Funnelweb, inspire fear. Yet Peacock Spiders, with their colourful fan-spreading courtship dances, have won rapturous appreciation worldwide.

Featuring over 1300 colour photographs, it is the most comprehensive account of Australian spiders ever published. With more than two-thirds of Australian spiders yet to be scientifically described, this book sets the scene for future explorations of our extraordinary Australian fauna. This field guide will be enjoyed by naturalists and anyone with an interest in learning more about Australia's incredible arachnids.

With over 40,000 described species, spiders have adapted to nearly every terrestrial environment across the globe. Over half of the world’s spider families live within the three contiguous Pacific Coast states—not surprising considering the wide variety of habitats, from mountain meadows and desert dunes to redwood forests and massive urban centers. This beautifully illustrated, accessible guide covers all of the families and many of the genera found along the Pacific Coast, including introduced species and common garden spiders. The author provides readers with tools for identifying many of the region’s spiders to family, and when possible, genus and species. He discusses taxonomy, distribution, and natural history as well as what is known of the habits of the spiders, the characters of families, and references to taxonomic revisions of the pertinent genera. Full-color plates for each family bring to life the incredible diversity of this ancient arachnid order.

This definitive guide to the subject, written by three experts in the field, offers a window into a fascinating world. Notorious species such as the Redback and the Sydney Funnel-web sit alongside less well known but equally intriguing spiders such as the ant-mimics and net-casting spiders. The introduction covers spider structure, evolution, reproduction, silk and venom, together with peculiarities of the family within an Australian context. The two main sections of the book deal with Trapdoor Spiders and Modern Spiders, and within each section there is a chapter on each of the 80 or so spider families that occur in Australia. Each is illustrated with beautiful photographs of the subjects, with more than 30 images per family for some of the larger groups such as the jumping spiders, and many rare images never before published.
