Spider Documentary

Greetings Dear Reader!

Today's post will be a brief one, and possibly slightly off topic as well.  I just found out about a National Geographic documentary on spiders.  Having watched it in its entirety last night, I can say that it is well worth watching, especially if you can ignore the overly dramatic music.  Unfortunately, it does not focus exclusively on jumping spiders.  However, it does have a nice segment on salticids and even features a few well respected researchers, such a Beth Jakobs, whose publications are well worth your time.  Happy watching!
