“Sparklemuffin” and “Skeletorus” – The Peacock Spiders in Queensland

The discovery of two new species of spiders was awesome especially when they were named  peacock spiders for their vivid patters and dance like movements. Jürgen Otto, an entomologist, specialist in photographing the arachnids said  “Despite the large number of species we have discovered just in the last few years, I can’t help feeling that we may have just scratched the surface of this most exciting group of spiders, and that nature has quite a few more surprises in store,”.
