Hello, my name is Lauren Saldana, I'm an entomology major over at FSU, and I specialize in Arachnids. So today we're going to talk about, how to identify the spiders of Oregon. And the first one that we'll be talking about is the American house spider. Which is a yellow/brown color, and their abdomen is streaked and splotched with spots all over their abdomen. And the next one that we'll be talking about is the daring jumping spider. They're very tiny, about the size of a pinky fingernail and they jump very well for their size. And also when the jumping spiders are young they're born white, and as they mature they turn into black. And that's it for Oregon.
