Jumping spiders are probably my favourite spider since I bought one from TSS about a month ago, but the spider I bought surprised me with an egg sac a couple weeks after I got it. The sac is 17 days old now and my jumper has stopped hugging the egg sac and is now sitting underneath it inside the cocoon kind of web she made around it. Is this an indicator that they could hatch soon? Will the babies help them selves out of the sac or will the mother tear the sac open for them? Hoping someone can give me some info regarding the egg sac and rearing the babies.

Hi, I've just joined the forum to learn about geckos as thinking about getting one and have been distracted by jumping spiders.

I've recently moved back to the UK from Australia and am missing all the little jumping spiders from the garden (and geckos). Any recommendations for suppliers, and also wanted to ask those of you who keep jumpers, what sort of life span do they have?

I reared some Net-casting spiders in Oz, so have some experience of keeping spiders, but will be reading up more before I get any.

Used to love watching Zebra Spiders as a kid, so seeing as the more exotic jumpers are becoming more popular as pets I thought I'd give keeping these beauties a go. So appologies before hand for any 'n00b' questions I might post on here! (Should get my first pair of jumpers on Friday,cant wait!).

Oooh, a thread just for jumpers! Yay! I have never liked spiders at all. Them and snakes I swore I would never have as pets. I still don't have a snake, but I got my first spider last week! Over the past few months I have fallen in love with the little P. Regius females and my local shop happened to have one in stock! My family think I've lost the plot, lol! This is Ethel Webster, my midlife crisis! Far cheaper than a sports car! >oOOo<

Chameleons are perfect - they don't make any mess, smell or noise, don't leave fur on the carpet and don't need walking!
