The Lithuanian Mint reveals the latest piece from the ‘Wild Africa’ series and invites numismatists & fans of exceptional coins to continue their acquaintance with the most mysterious African animals. It is time to present the ‘Jumping Spider’ coin that shows the greatest number of eyes in this series! This fascinating and mysterious creature from East Africa wants to look you straight in the eye and introduce itself.

It may sound scary but one of my biggest weaknesses is the taste for human blood. Wait, don’t be scared!.. Let me reassure you – although I like human blood, I pose no danger for people. Mosquitoes that have eaten their fill are the greatest delicacy for me! And we all know what they eat… I’ve heard plenty of things about myself, even that I’m the most bizarre animal in the world because I hunt my prey based on the smell of what it had for breakfast.

What’s more, I am veeery athletic. I think I could take part in a long jump competition! That is basically why I am called a jumper. By the way, I am the only spider that does not weave webs. I do not bother with weaving – after all, as soon as I spot a victim, I can jump right on top of it and grab it.

I live in East Africa and I love spending time by Lake Victoria, which brings people from all over the world together. Perhaps you have already guessed who I am and what my name is?
