Without any doubt, jumping spiders are among the most beautiful spiders in the world. They belong to Salticidae family, which contains more than 5,000 described species, making it the largest family of spiders. They range in size from a body length of 1 to 22 mm. They have eight eyes with excellent vision, which give them a 360 degree view of the world. Jumping Spiders are very active hunters. They feed on small insects and other spiders, sometimes twice their body size. They do not use a web to catch their prey; instead they hunt by foot and with their amazing jumping ability. They can jump up to 20 to 80 times their own body length. If a five feet (1.5 m) tall person could jump like that, then he could leap over 328 ft (110 m)!
