Australia is home to many strange and unusual animals. When asked, most people would say that it's the marsupials of the country that are the most significantly different to the rest of the world. Perhaps that assumption should be questioned - Australia is also home to the tiny Peacock Spider (Maratus volans), whose behaviour and appearance is nothing short of startling.
