Pretty sure this is a phiddipus regius because of the size and the colors I can also tell its a male because it is black and white females are usually brown and dark brown and also it is not dangerous

Hi, this looks like Phidippus audax (Bold Jumper). P. audax and P. regius are very similar looking! The white spots on the anterior abdomen are usually rounder on P. regius, and of the two P. audax is much more common in Texas.
