Peacock spiders show more of their colours

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

OK, a lot of people don't like arachnids. But c'mon, these little guys are simply stunning.

Seven new peacock spiders have been described in the journal Zootaxa.

And just like their cousins in the Maratus genus, they all live in Australia and they all feature those amazing iridescent colours that the males will flaunt during courtship.

The man behind the descriptions is Museums Victoria's Joseph Schubert, a 22-year-old peacock spider specialist.

They're incredibly beautiful. They all look like they've been hand-painted.

This guy has other hilarious videos. Some of which may not be quite PG.
