I like this spider because it has many cute eyes. Also, I like its colorful flaps and its dance. It is a special spider.

Here's looking at you, kid!The peacock spider has 8 simple eyes and 8 legs that are brown and white. The two short "legs" under the eyes that look like arms are called pedipalps.

This spider's cephalothorax has red and grey stripes with black and white markings. Its abdomen has two very colorful flaps. When it wants to attract a mate, it will spread out its flaps like a peacock and raise two legs. Then it will dance from side to side.

Can you see why the Maratus volans is called the peacock spider?

I eat mosquitos so they don't eat you!
