I wanted to introduce you to the Banana Spider. It's a common spider here in Louisiana and we see a LOT of them in the summer time in the woods. It's also called the Golden Silk spider because its web is golden in color. Can you see that in this picture?
This picture has two spiders in it. Which one do you think is the daddy (male) and which one the mommy (female)? It might not be what you think!
It's pretty cool that spiders can spin webs out of their body...like Spiderman :-) Or I guess Spiderman is like a spider, since the spider came first! Anyway, they can make this cool web stuff out of their body and they make a web but only the *inside* part is sticky! It traps the insects that the spider will eat. The outside part that connects the spider to the stuff around it is not sticky at all; it's just very strong! How do they make two different kinds of web?? Pretty amazing stuff.
