Man that male is going crazy, willing to do anything to mate...o yeah something like I always try to do.


The female spider didn't even move, not even by a millimeter.

That is very creepy.

Are those the real sounds the spider is making, or added effects?

My impression is that the male just does this instinctively out of horniness. It's a display, in my opinion, meant to impress the female that it is healthy. I don't think the female would have been receptive if the male had not done this.

"Looooooook into my eyes (all four of them)....you are getting turned on by meeeeeeeee!"

That has to be one of the coolest, cutest and most awesome spectacles of nature I've seen in a while.

Trust me, it's a lot more interesting than the singles scene in my town.

All that effort just to get eaten at the end... perhaps.

Thanks for posting the video, was really odd to watch it, was almost like the spider was saying 'yeah, it's THIS big'.

AFAIK, only species where the female is substantially larger than the male, does he get eaten (Occasionally).

I thought it was pretty cool, be I also love spiders.. My girlfriend was like "Why doesn't he just do something serious?" and I had to answer "Well, you like foreplay too, dont you?"


I guess she was all ears and eyes since she was that still.

The Black Widow eats her mate during copulation, hence the name, but I don't think that's usual for most spiders.

Interesting video

All sexual mating rituals must be based on hormones and instincts. I do think they think while doing these things, its just there hormones, and insticts like you say.

What the heck kind of spider was that? It kind of looked like a hobo. I had no idea they made such noises. I guess we learn something every day. I don't think it was that cute. Kind of discusting if you ask me. I have to live with spiders but I do not have to enjoy their company.
