Bug Wisdom: Happiness

Bug Wisdom: Happiness

The dance of the peacock spider is quite the sight. These tiny arachnids show off their moves in one serious dance number that could bring a smile and sense of joy to anyone’s face. While they flap their legs and shake their bottoms, the true goal of this display is to attract females for mating. Females will note the intricacy of their markings and movements in their dance to determine if they have what it takes to be a potential suitor.

No matter the outcome, the peacock continues its “happy dance,” showing us that even through good or bad, find your happiness and have fun while you’re doing it.
