Sexual cannibal The tensile strength of spider silk is comparable to that of steel wire of the same thickness. However, as the density of steel is about six times that of silk, silk is correspondingly stronger than steel wire of the same weight. Adolescent Black Widow

Orb Weaver Spider
  Orb Weaver Spider September 28, 2010
The building of a web is an engineering feat, begun when the spider floats a line on the wind to another surface. The spider secures the line and then drops another line from the center, making a "Y". The rest of the scaffolding follows with many radii of non-sticky silk being constructed before a final spiral of sticky capture silk. Orb Weaver Spider

Yellow & Black Garden Spider
  Yellow & Black Garden Spider May 29, 2010
The Black and Yellow Argiope is a common orb web spider. Orb web means it spins a web like a circle. Female garden spiders are the ones you see in large webs. Their webs usually have a 'Z' shaped line in the middle of them going vertical. Their webs are where they spend most of their time, and it for the purpose of catching food. When an insect gets caught in the web the garden spider will usually shake the web back and forth to further trap the insect or let the insect fall if not secured in t Yellow & Black Garden Spider
