DESCRIPTION: I would like to introduce you to Maratus Volans which live in tropical forests of Queensland (Australia). Tiny spider is from blood line of leaping spider. A size of a spider is about 4-5 millimetre. The main characteristic of this specie is that a tom has accumbent rounded form as a mail. Mails are accumbent to belly when a spider keeps calm. But when male parent dances for female parent then it uprise almost vertically opening these mails as peacock's train. A dance of Spider-Peacock could be seen only through macro lens of a camera. This is one of the amazing examples of wonderful beauty of nature surrounding us every day but it is out of human view.
