Australian Peacock Spider rocks my world

This is the fanciest bloody spider I've EVER seen.

The Peacock Spider has an amazing courtship ritual (naturally his wife is of the dull brown variety) which involves lots of multi-leg waggling and flashing of his flashy ass - head over to Ark in Space for some more details and wonderful photos by Jurgen Otto.
