An interesting symbiosis, where evolution takes one big step forward and one step sideways. Teamwork is used for survival, the large spider, controls the web. Unlike organic spiders who utilizes a sticky substance to trap insects, these particular creatures uses a system of gears.
With a small twist, the gears can wrap around the victim, prevent movement. However the gear like web, has to have tension, so the large one has to stay in place. These webs are often called cogwebs for their gear like appearance.
The smaller drones, have a flower like appearance, and are designed to attract the prey. Once an item is caught, they go to work. They have two primary jobs:
1. Drill large holes in the sides of the living creature.
2. Drain it of it’s lubricants and liquids.
Once the prey is immobilized, the larger spider now can devour the remains.
