Australia's Dancing, Peacock Jumping Spider


Recommended Posts

 

 

Jumping spiders are found on every continent except for Antarctica. They have excellent vision and actively hunt for prey as opposed to trapping prey in webs. They also engage in rather elaborate courtship dances. The video below shows a male Peacock spider—a type of jumping spider that lives in Australia—getting his groove on. The leg waving and abdomen shaking are an attempt to attract the attention of a female spider.  

 

 

Another endearing quality of Jehovah--his limitless sense of humor.  ^_^

I hate spiders yet jumping spiders I actively seek out to photograph. They act like little puppies when you go look at them. Although it still makes me leap backwards when they jump at you as they always end up doing.

Beautiful creatures. Shame the rest of them are repellant to look at. :)

No idea how safe the rest of his site is but this guy takes amazing shots of them as well as others.
