Most people are not very fond of spiders, what more many have the fear of these eight legged creatures, but they truly are very interesting things. This video shows a very unique spider which will amaze you with his mating ritual. It is specific species of jumping spider called peacock spider. They are very tiny with approximately 4 mm in length, and can be found along beaches near Perth in Western Australia.
There are several types of these spiders and this one is Maratus speciosus (Coastal peacock spider). It is a male and they have a very interesting behavior when are trying to impress opposite gender. What you can see on the video is that a male dances and lifts up its tail-flap, which has some very intense colors, and that where the name comes from. Spider hops and lifts up its legs. It really is an incredible sight. They added the music to the video, which makes it even more great.
