Peacock Spiders Dancing

Peacock Spiders (Maratus Volans) are tiny spiders that might look normal at first sight. But once they begin to dance, you will understand why they are named so.
The male peacock spiders come in different colors and they put up a display to lure the female. But not all females like it. When they are already pregnant or if they are nor impressed, they shun the male off. But of the male still continues to dance, the females might kill them, and even eat them. 
The Peacock Spider is native to Australia, and mostly found in or in regions around Perth. They are very, very tiny. Most do not grow more than 5 cm in length.

Here are a few Peacock Spider Videos:
