Just a quarter inch long (five millimeters), male peacock spiders are known for their brightly colored backs and mating dances. Jürgen Otto, a researcher who has been working to document the tiny insects, has identified 20 new species in the past four years. Otto has captured some incredible images and videos and posted them online for the world to see.
