Caption: Head of jumping spider. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the head of a Zebra jumping spider, Salticus scenicus. Five of its eight eyes (yellow) are seen, one large pair at the front, and smaller eyes on the side. Beneath the eyes are mouthparts; walking legs are also seen. The Zebra jumping spider gets its name from white stripes which occur on its black abdomen. Jumping spiders have acute vision which assists in their jumping habit. They stalk their prey, then jump on them at the last moment. Salticus scenicus is the most common member of the family of jumping spiders, widespread throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Magnification: x50 at 6x4.5cm size.
