Unintended importation of tropical jumping spiders (Salticidae) into a laboratory monkey colony via banana supply

Plesker, Roland; Berger, Jürgen

This report describes a case of unintended importation of tropical baby jumping spiders to a laboratory monkey colony. The spiders were detected in a cocoon attached to a banana for monkey consumption. In identifying the family of spiders as jumping spiders (Salticidae), it turned out that these spiders would not have been venomous to humans and they most likely would not have had the potential to establish a new spider colony in the facility.
