Beauty is in the Eyes


The above image is a Jumping Spider.

Don’t get scared. They are harmless beautiful creatures.

They have four pairs of eyes and they are watching you.

Jumping spider vs Humans-power games (who is stronger?)

  • A jumping spider can jump as much as 50 times its length. The highest leap recorded by a human being is 12 feet. (Human is supposed to leap 300 feet)
  • Humans lack spider-sense because of the lack of the sensitive hairs that cover the body of spiders.
  • Spider produces silk (web) which we can’t. (spider silk can reach tensile strength of 1.3 Gpa. The tensile strength of steel is a little higher 1.6 Gpa)

Spider vs Humans-who is more dangerous?

“Spiders are anti-social, keep pests under control, and mostly mind their own business, but they somehow summon fear in humans who are far more dangerous, deceitful and have hurt more people.

Of the two I’m more suspicious about the latter.”

  • Jumping spiders really jump
  • They don’t hunt by creating webs. They do produce silk acting like a dragline
  • They have a great vision. They have 4 pairs of eyes
  • They have no ears but they hear well thanks to their extraordinary sensory hairs.
  • Scientists say they sing & dance
  • Their favourite food is Malaria causing mosquitoes
  • The life span is one year

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
