Another new friend!

Let’s take a break from the birds and return to the bees for one post.

I used to keep a jumping spider in a test tube last year. Released it when I had to return to Malaysia for the holidays. Lately, I found another friend wandering in my room.

Here, it’s feeding on a leaf hopper which very unfortunately decided to hop into my room… and later cornered and forced into a test tube to be made dinner. Your sacrifice will be remembered.

And here is the spider again feeding on those fly-like insects from the toilet. This is its staple diet actually. I don’t go looking for leaf hoppers everyday.

I was planning to transfer it to a large jar or something but since I will be returning back to Malaysia soon I’ll probably release it one of these days. Hope to get some good shots of it before that though.
