Friends in My Garden- 11


Giant Wood Spider- from my garden

Let me introduce two types of spiders from my garden.

The Giant Wood Spider or  Giant Golden Orb Weaver (Nephila pilipes) is seen with its vertical web at the height of a floor. The Signature spider (Argiope anasuja) is an orb-weaver found among shrubs and is known as a “signature spider” due to the presence of a zig-zag stabilimentum, somewhat resembling signature, on the web.

Spiders are eight-legged predatory critters, which are great web designers, belonging to Arachnids. They bite with venom-injecting fangs to kill prey and nearly all of them are poisonous.
