Some exciting news comes out of Australia. It looks as though there was a new spider species discovered called the Peacock spider. I have always thought spiders were cool, but this spider is beyond cool because it has a feather like back that they display for their matting rituals. The spider was discovered by Scientist Jürgen Otto and it was announced a few days ago of their existence. Because this is a new species, there is not a whole lot of information on the peacock spider. For now we can have fun drawing the peacock spider while we wait for more info on this beautiful species of arachnid.
