Today we would like to introduce you to one of the spiders at Pacific Science Center: our currently off-exhibit regal jumping spider (Phidippus regius), Regina.
So what is it that makes her so fun to look at? Is it her iridescent chelicera? The beautiful markings on her abdomen? Her eight prominent eyes? Regina is arguably just as beautiful as the butterflies in our Tropical Butterfly House, in her own way. Her common name is, after all, “Regal Jumping Spider.”
