If you spend time outside gardening, you’ve likely run into this beautiful spider before. Like other jumping spiders, Zebras have great eyesight. Their eyes can actually form detailed images, making these day-active spiders incredible hunters. They are native to Europe, but were introduced and can now be found throughout southern Canada and across the US (less common in the south).

Size: Body length of female 4 to 6.5 mm; of male 4 to 5.5 mm
