How this species of male jumping spider manages the dangers of dating - videos
Love is tough if you are a male 'Jotus remus' jumping spider - if you want to ask her out to dinner, you have to convince her that you're not the main course.
So how do male jumping spiders mate - without getting eaten?
According to research published at Peckhamia, they just have to know how to show some leg.
The spiders basically play peak-a-boo with their club-like legs - hiding behind leaves and sticks and exposing their legs.
When the females attack the decoys - the male then dodges her. If she is interested in mating she eventually stops and the mating can commence.
According to the journal the researchers who observed this behaviour - found the males using it managed to avoid getting eaten 100% of the time.
