Bug of the Week: Lost Jumping Spider

Boy, was this little guy lost.

I found him in the cat litter bag. Doesn't it look like it has a smiley face?

Based on those amazing eyes and its body shape, it is a jumping spider.

Jumping spiders wander around looking for insects. This one hadn't made a good choice and got trapped. I scooped it into a handy container and carried it out to the garden (it is warm here). It watched me the entire time.

I couldn't tell whether it was scared or hungry. What do you think?
