Ohh man, great find!…. Cross breeding is exactly how they survive! And produce new and crazy coloured slings!.. hence why I say the egg came first.


Hi, this is a male and female mating. The smaller red one is the male. They’re Jumping Spiders (Salticidae) in the genus Phidippus. Looks like Phidippus texanus. I need to create a species page to file these when I have more time. Nice find. 🙂
