Male spiders drum out mesmerizing syncopated beats to woo mates



Male wolf spiders (Schizocosa stridulans) that improvise intricate dance moves are big winners in the mating game, wooing females with showstopping tap routines. Now, new research finds that the more complex the dance, the more likely the spiders are to find love. 

The study researchers found that improvised steps benefited the spiders, which live in humid, mostly forested areas worldwide. The ability to bust a complicated move wasn’t associated with size or strength in males, but it may hint to females that the male possesses a certain athleticism and grace.
