This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

A person with the head and arms of a jumping spider.

Jumping spider men are animal people variants of the common jumping spider, who can inhabit most savage biomes. They spawn in groups of 1-3 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves, but may pick fights if provoked. In terms of size, they are a little over half the weight of the average dwarf.

Like other savage animal people, jumping spider men can join civilizations, become historical figures, appear as visitors and be playable in adventurer mode. They feel no fear or pain and can't be stunned, and their three pairs of arms allow them to carry multiple weapons and shields at once.

Some dwarves like jumping spider men for their striking appearance and their ability to leap.

Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Why don't YOU guess what goes here? Guess. Just guess.

Incidentally, the ASCII character 'j' looks like a person jumping forwards!

It is currently unknown whether jumping spider women throw tea parties or hold bake sales.

Does whatever a ju- Nah, too easy.
