An exciting discovery has been made this summer at a Cheshire Wildlife Trustnature reserve.

Arachnologist Richard Burkmar discovered a special tiny jumping spider, just half the size of a matchstick head, during a survey visit to the Cheshire bog at Holcroft Moss Nature Reserve in Warrington.

His discovery turned out to be a rare Sibianor larae – a species never recognised before in the UK.

I don't like spiders but can tolerate the small ones.

I LOVE spiders! :w00t:  Jumping spiders in particular are great fun because they will repeatedly jump at you ..... they have no fear. They honestly think they can drive you away. :lol:

Spiders don't bother me, I think they are rather fascinating.
