Published on Sep 12, 2008

Here is some video I took (and stabilized from some really shakey footage using Deshaker, a plugin for Virtualdub) of male and female jumping spiders from the genus "Tutelina".

Not sure on the species, but my best guess is Tutelina elegans. The female could be mimicking the antennae movements of an ant.

The music was recorded by myself.
