Need ID, and what is going on if they are different species. Seperated after i took the pic.
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. 🙂
