This is “Plexippus paykulli” male Jumping Spider. A very commonly seen salticid around human habitats. They are very robust, fast moving spiders. Usually they can be seen near light source, hunting down insects that are attracted to the light. Very photogenic in nature, they tend to pose without moving, if handled carefully. More to come from my home premises, stick around. 😊
