Enough about this crazy awesome spider! I’d now like to introduce myself. My name is Dan Devine. I am currently a college student attending the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse, and this web page was an assignment for my organismal biology class. I am majoring in biomedical science with the intent to go on to pharmacy or physical therapy school. Wish me luck! I love snowboarding, pizza, spaghetti, and music. I listen to almost every kind of music out there. Especially the underground stuff that no one has heard of!

Interestingly enough I kind of got stuck doing the organism I am afraid of the most, the spider. Our intent for the projects this semester was to do a “spooky” organism. Well, what is spookier than an eight-legged thing that… well I don't know why I was afraid of them. It’s true that we’re most afraid of the unknown. The more research I did on this organism, the more my fear subsided, and instead my interest and curiosity grew. Now, don't get me wrong these things are pretty creepy! But I also have to admit Phidippus audax is also pretty incredible!

I hope that this webpage has been helpful for your curiosity or even for your research. If you have any questions or concerns about any of the information provided on this webpage feel free to contact me through my email: Also, if your interested in other cool organisms like mine, check out the rest of my classmates' web pages here.

Have an awesome day!!! :-)
