Listen Up- Jumping Spiders Can Hear Airborne Sounds

Daniel M. Vahaba

Journal of Experimental Biology

February 2017

In the article Listen Up- Jumping Spiders Can Hear Airborne Sounds author, Daniel M.

Vahaba, explains how jumping spiders not only have a sense of sight but they also appear to

have a sense of sound. When a sound made by a lab chair caused a noticeable jump in the spider,

the authors of the study decided to test this theory. The authors made sure the spiders were on a

vibration free table and that the sounds were transmitted through the air. They wanted to make

sure the spiders werent feeling the sounds. The jumping spiders not only heard the sounds,

but they perceived low sounds as a threat, due to the fact that their predator, the wasp, has a low

scale buzzing sound when they fly. It is still not completely proven as to how spiders actually

hear sound. Jumping spiders have tiny air-flow-detecting hair on their legs which that may

make it possible for them to translate the sound through their leg hair.

describing how society has become consumed with the world of social media and technology.

She explains how different we perceive ourselves on social media, giving the example And

please dont tag me in that photo; Im sure I never looked like that. Todays people are obsessed

with creating an online persona and having that persona get as many likes as possible. People

in todays society have surrendered to having their privacy invaded, yet are afraid to upset

anyone by refusing to allow them access to their social media. Many companies are even using

this invasion of privacy to track likes and preferences of potential customers. Technology and

social media seems to be playing an all too crucial role in everyday life.
