Fruit Flies and Hair Strands

Most of our posts are on lizards, particularly anoles. However, this semester Josh has decided to tackle a project evaluating the spatial abilities of the jumping spider (Phidippus audax). Here are a couple of photos of Josh’s progress, including carefully attaching a fruit fly to a hair-strand, a critical step of his experimental design. Stay tuned for updates.
