These birds perform a elaborate dance of courtship that both the femal and the male take part in. The duet gets complicated and can have up to 25 moves. Once a mate is picked they are mates for life, the male staying and help raise the babies with the female.
Male flys catch an insect and wrap it up for the female fly. Then he joins a swarm of other male flys who have done the same thing and they all dance for a female fly who picks her favorite from the pack. Once she has picked a mate she will eat the insect offered while mating.
Courtship between seahorses consists of the male and female both dancing. The male often spirals around the female and the elaborate show may last upto an hour.
The male rabbit chases the female until she stops. Once stopped they box with their legs, making a kind of dance. The dance ends when both rabbits jump in the air.
