JUMPING SPIDER MATING RITUAL

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D92AUXhYZ0M]

I know many people find spiders icky but this video was too interesting to pass up. It shows a male jumping spider participating in an elaborate mating ritual. He is attempting to impress the female so that she will allow him to mate with her. Apparently, the audio has been enhanced to allow us to hear the sounds he makes during his “song and dance”.
