This chapter examines how the jumping spider's eight eyes are structured, how they function, and how they might have evolved. It also reviews the intricate vision-based predatory strategies for which jumping spiders are justly renowned. The last part of the chapter combines what is known about variation in salticid eye design and behavior with what is known from traditional taxonomic and modern phylogenetic data in order to reconsider the hypothesis that araneophagy has been a driving force in the evolution of the salticid principal eye.

Keywords:   jumping spiders, salticids, araneophagy, predatory strategies
