Wonderful World: Peacock spiders dance for their lives

Male peacock spiders have evolved spectacular iridescent ‘fans’ and elaborate dance routines to get the attention of a potential mate.

There are several different species of this beautiful spider and the dance of each species is unique.

There are pauses in the dance to drum on the ground, and occasionally on the female’s head. The vibrations of the drumbeats travel across the ground and up the legs of the female, causing her to become aroused.
