Spider Dances to YMCA

Courtship display of the Coastal peacock spider (Maratus speciosus). It inhabits coastal dune habitats near Perth in Western Australia.  Watch the video…

Hard to believe, but there is no footage of this species yet in any wildlife documentary.

Filmed by Jurgen Otto with Canon 60D and 100 mm macro lens. Thanks to David Knowles from Perth for providing the spiders filmed here.
