Hello friends… You all know that today, 4th October is celebrated for WORLD ANIMAL DAY, and, to make this day memorable I want to share a beautiful tiny spider which I found few days earlier.

The sound ‘animal’ creates images of creatures having four legs in our mind. We often forget that all the birds, spiders and insects too belong to the kingdom entitled ‘Animalia’. And, consequently, in posters, advertisements etc there found a major scarcity of their presence.

Any way, this spider species is important to us because during my fieldwork of almost four years I never saw it before. Though, surprisingly enough, it delights me for two consecutive days and two different places as well with a distance of almost 500 meters on the eastern bank of Boisa Beel this year. It is a jumping spider and has typical eye pattern of the Salticides. Probably it is Siler semiglaucus. No doubt, it is among the rare spiders of our village. But, the good news is that my village is fortunate enough to possess with such a beauty.

Wish you all a very prosperous WORLD ANIMAL DAY.
