Comments & ID Thoughts

Hia! I found this beauty when gathering jumping spiders in my backyard, I have a large porch that is over a ravine with ants always crawling on it. I have had trouble identifying this little guy or gal as I canโ€™t find any images or descriptions matching em, they were very docile and seemed curious of me when I first spotted em.
