Peacock Spider – Australia’s Show Off Super Hero Spider
Sunday, 12 October 2014
Australia is home to many strange and unusual animals, something the majority of us know. When asked, most people would say that it is the marsupials of the country that are the most significantly different to the rest of the world. Perhaps that assumption should be questioned – Australia is also home to the tiny Peacock Spider, whose behaviour and appearance is nothing short of startling.
These marvellous pictures were taken by photographer Jurgen Otto and Ark in Space would like to thank him for allowing us to reproduce these amazing pictures. Above, here is Jurgen explaining more about the Peacock Spider.
