  3. Basically it is a BLANKET WEB and contains 1000's of spiders. If you look at the size of some of the sole blanket web builders and then multiply this by 20.000 then you can see why this looks so incredible.

    It was on a tv show and there are 5 different kinds of spiders involved together in creating it. The wildlife person said it was unusual to have different kinds of spiders in the same web structures.
     
  5. That is quite extraordinary as it shows co-operation. Never heard of that before.:eek: :eek:

    I'd have to see it again a few times to really remember it all. He had a thing sort of like an upside down umbrella. He tapped a limb and caught what dropped. He pointed at obviously different spiders, naming them although I can't remember them. It was pretty interesting. They said the park is getting about 5 times the usual number of visitors to see it.
