Do you know what spider this is? The spider was found in a basement bathroom in Peterborough, Ontario.
It has orange-brownish stripes on its legs. It’s fury and thick. If you can say that about a spider… Please help, because we’re thinking its a baby tarantula…
No fear needed. It is one of the Jumping Spiders in the family Salticidae. This is the Bold Jumping Spider, Phidippus audax. They are active and curious with very good eyesight, but not aggressive or dangerous.
Even if it was a baby tarantula, tarantulas are very harmless.
