Winner of film competitions at the Evolution and Arachnology scientific conferences, 'Pygids' is a zany music video about an amazing order of Arachnids called Amblypygids. They split from spiders around 300 million years ago, long before dinosaurs were around. Tyler Corey (a PhD student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln) studies the signals individuals use during competition and mating. We currently know very little about this fascinating and ancient lineage, as you can see by their brief entry in Wikipedia.
