Zebra Spider – Salticus scenicus

Without a doubt our favourite species of spider found in the garden. What these guys lack in size they make up for in personality. They seem inquisitive as to what people are up to, verging on nosey. Ok, so we shouldn’t anthropomorphize to much, but when one walks up to you and stares its hard not to wonder what’s going on inside it’s tiny head.

This could actually be one of three Salticus species, but scenicus is the most likely (the most common).
