Another Spider

My husband and the kids found this cute little spider.

I have never seen this type of spider around here before.

He really wasn’t very big, only the size of the bolts on the gate.

But he was hairy. He had a red spot on his behind. I panicked just a bit.

He sure looks cute (in the photos).

Jonah (my husband) looked him up and discovered that he is a Zebra Jumping Spider. Or at least that is our best guess. I love how we can find nature type things to learn about even in the city.

What science things are you learning about where you live?
