Some other jumping spiders are shown below the Australian Bronze Jumping Spider. Jumping spiders are among the most visually attractive of all spiders.
Note that dead spiders usually fade in colour, so nearly all the spiders will look blacker or darker in colour in real life than they do in the photos of dead spiders from the museum.
