New species of jumping spider uses sexy Peek-A-Boo "Fan Dance" to lure mates

Jurgen Otto - famous for discovering and studying the gorgeousness of Peacock Spiders - first noticed the males of the Jotus remus jumping spider had curious little feathery paddles on the ends of their third legs. It took Otto a while to work out what the little fans were for, but he discovered the males use them to lure females into attacking the little paddle. When the female stops attacking, she's ready to mate (this is dangerous for the male because if she catches him before she's in the mood, she'll probably eat him)

Check out this article for more details and pictures https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn28756-male-spiders-lure-aggressive-females-with-peek-a-boo-paddle-game/ It's super fascinating!

It begins when a male positions himself on the other side of a leaf to a female, and starts sticking a paddle out from underneath and waving it at her. When the female tries to pounce on what she thinks is prey, the male darts across to the other side, and repeats the paddle action.

Those females who had previously mated attacked the paddle for longer without ever mating, with the game only ending when either the male gave up or the female departed. “The cat-and-mouse game [sometimes] goes on for hours,” says Otto. “I don’t know of any other spider with paddles like these, or with such behaviour.”

Also the spiders, similar to peacock spiders are completely adorable! Only 5mm long (about ⅛")
