Description

Small black spider. About half the size of a penny. Black and white bands on its legs. A red-orange almost heart shaped mark on the top of the abdomen. Large green chelicera.

I'm assuming it was a juvenile bold jumper based on its color and small size. I didn't see it jump at all, but it did rear back and raise its two front legs (not the pedipalps) in a defensive/aggressive posture.

"I saw this squirrel today Sunday April 12, 2015 around 1:00PM at the Cheviot Hills Recreation Center (2551 Motor Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90064). The squirrel appeared to be maybe just looking for food and then went up a tree when I got closer. I think it might have been an Eastern Fox Squirrel since these are very common in city parks."

I found this crawling up the wall of my bedroom this morning.

Greyish Brown body with two vertical stripes along the top of the abdomen. Similar color of dark shading on the back of the cephalothorax. Dark coloring in the head/mouthparts.

It's about the size of a penny. I captured it and took it outside and it crawled to the underside of the windowsill, stretching out to become more long-bodied and leave no parts of it's legs exposed.

This was one of two or three of these plants growing near a lookout point on a part of the trail with southern exposure. The plants around it seemed more on the desert side of the chaparral than the more woodland stuff we had passed on the more shaded parts of the trail.
