Jumping and Trapdoor Spiders – Friend or Foe?

Today I learned all about Trapdoor and Jumping spiders!


The Trapdoor spider burros underground and makes a small tunnel. The Trapdoor spider would make a trapdoor and every time a bug or some type of insect would walk by, the spider would jump out and stick its long venomous fangs into its victim. Unless the victim is bigger than the spider nothing can escape the venomous fangs of the Trapdoor spider!

Now on to the Jumping Spider!

The Jumping spider has great vision. It has two huge eyeballs that can track its victim. They have special hair on their legs that can make them stick to roofs and other cool stuff. The Jumping spider can jump super high and is very good at stalking its pray. The Jumping spider is probably one of my favorite spiders!
