The Golden Orb Weaver (Nephila edulis) is one of the biggest spiders found in Australia. Their webs are so large that they can be spotted on a long distance both because of their size, but also because of their yellow-golden color. Females are much larger than males and can reach a length of 4.5 cm or 1.3 inches.
These spiders have many names from where I come from: Tiger spiders, tomato spiders, garden spiders. We used to have one almost every summer in a round window on our front porch. If you touch them, they start moving their legs and bouncing in their webs!
on average people eat 8 spiders in their sleep (during lifetime). totally unrelated to tattoos, I just felt like making your day that much better :) also, there are aprx 8 bug legs in each chocolate bar.
"NET CASTING SPIDER (Deinopsis subrufa) - Deinopsis are unique amongst arachnids in their predatory methods. They remain suspended above branches or tree trunks with their trapezoidal webs stretched between their four front legs.
A creepy new spider, called the Brown Widow, has moved in and is spooking out a lot of people in Orange County. Until about ten years ago, most people living here hadn’t even heard of a brown widow spider.
