Peacock Spider and Columbus Pride
The Peacock spider is one of the most fabulous creatures you can find. To impress its mate, the male lifts its abdomen like a pride flag. Check out this amazing video. As we now know, such impressive traits evolved *not* because the female is frivolous, but rather as a sign of genetic health–if you are healthy enough to maintain such bright color pigments, you’ve got good genes to pass on.
