No matter how tiny a spider might be, I can’t help but convert myself into a marathon runner whenever I see one somewhere. And I never thought I would say this, but right at this moment, I love spiders! The spider shown in the video below is probably one of the most gorgeous creatures I have ever laid my eyes on! Just see for yourself!
It is called Maratus speciosus, aka the coastal peacock spider. It is approximately 4 mm in length and this species can be found along the beaches near Perth in Western Australia. The uploader writes in the YouTube description that due to this spider’s rarity, there has been no footage of this creature till date, even if it has been known since 1874! This is the only video recording available of this beautiful coastal peacock spider!
