Tropical Orb Weaver (Eriophora ravilla)
- Sabal Palm Sanctuary, South TX, USA These nocturnal spiders will spend the daylight hours curled up in a leaf, hidden away, waiting for night fall. At dusk they emerge and set about the methodical task of weaving their impressive webs. An adult female Tropical Orb Weaver can easily construct a web in excess of three feet. They feed on many night flying insects. As dawn arrives, the spider will begin deconstructing her web and once again seek protected shelter throughout the day.
