Meet peacock spider in the world and see their courtship dance adorable!
one of the most common phobias in the world is arachnophobia, an irrational fear of spiders. But there is a kind of spider is so cute arachnophobes even like them.
'm talking about those little jumping spiders (family Salticidae). Not only do these tiny spiders, but they are usually colored and have a keen eye - essential for tracking and pounce on its prey quickly, because it not spin webs to trap insects.is possible that I may be projecting just a little, but jumping spiders seem to have personalities and, as a zoology professor told me when I was a graduate student, even learn to recognize their human care donors. But to me, the most remarkable of all jumping spiders are kind Maratus . Although only eight species have been formally described to date, at least 20 species are known, and each of them are found only in Australia.
spiders are remarkable because males of most species have wings abs shimmering colors which inflate their courtship (Otto and Hill 2011).
"The first time I saw it, I was off mating display. Could not believe that something like this would happen on this scale with this color and movement," said Dr. J?rgen Otto, an entomologist investigating marine mites at the Australian Institute of Marine Science in Townsville, Australia.
Females of the species studied carefully duller coloration brilliant movements of men, vibrations and dancing to determine if they are the right species and the best choice for a companion.
"eyes front were very, very big. Simply observe everything," said Dr. Otto.
is enormous evolutionary pressure on these tiny spiders because breeding attempts may end when the female makes a meal of his alleged lover. "If he does the right thing, she might think that this is the right partner," said Dr. Otto. These colorful fans may have other uses as well. Males at least one species,
vespertilio also show these fins stained for ritualized contests (Otto and Hill 2012). Dr. Otto is very fond of these spiders and their enthusiasm for them to make great contributions to our knowledge of these animals poorly understood.
"The behavior of this kind is a way reminds me of a dog," he said. "You can see how the spider is excited. You can see when they are afraid and want to escape. You can see all these emotions that the spider did." Thanks to Dr. Otto patience and diligence, the courtship dance of a species of peacock spider
was captured on a film for the first time.
"But since I discovered this species here, I do not want to live anywhere else. I think this is probably the most beautiful spider in the world."
