    This is super cool! Never seen anything like it!

  • Thank you Keeli! These spiders are fairly common around here. They are not poisonous, and in fact are beneficial as they often make their webs under citrus trees, thus reducing fruit flies, and other insect pests.
    I guess the red colouration, spikes and white tufts of silk serve to keep people and animals from crashing through their web. I know that keeps me from running through their web!
