Aww, dammit! This is what I get for rarely frequenting the spider forum. :mad:--> at self

In my defense, I wasn't originally going to post it, but Lori said I should. :8o

Several years ago I found a sight that had very short clips (was a time of DU then) of several different species, it was fascinating to see the variations in the dance. They used the same grid background, so could be the same person/people. Hopefully we'll see more full length vids soon!

I just found it! Movies of Jumping Spider Courtship

This whole "Tree of Life" site is really cool. They also have lots of Latro images.

cool, thanks for the link!

are there any other spiders that have complicated courtship dances like that?

Edit: the ten days ago was supposed to be this link. ;)
