Can’t dance? Well, you’re not getting laid! A female Peacock Spider intensely judges males dancing ability before she accepts him for sex, once his dancing and tapping convinces the female, he will delicately move past her pointy fangs and reach around to fertilize her.
Maratus volans, better known as the Peacock Spider. The brilliant colouring is not just for decoration but also to attract females. The peacock spider has earned its name when he courts with his mate through dancing. Like a peacock, he raises his two magnificently coloured flaps and dances for the female.
