spider of the nature, can be presented in different colors, even so the
species remains the same one. The males are very lesser, and the
females biggest, being possess two reproductive agencies (one in each
side of the body), can be found in only one of the sides, being virgin
of the other side, or to be found in both. Behavior: In the spiders of
the sorts Gasteracantha, Micratena and Eriophora the male constructs the
“wire of on acasalamento” to the teia of the female. It touches this
wire as if it was musical instrument of rope to excite the female
sexually and to make to take it position receptive. While the female is
magic with the cut, the male copula quickly and runs away before it
perceives that she was copulada. Thus, the males of these spiders obtain
to survive and to go to look other females to fecundar them. If they
had been devorados, each male would die fecundando an only female, and
with certainty leaving lesser number of descendants of what chance was
had to cross more than with a sexual partner. It constructs to teias
orbiculares, generally in the height next to 1,70 m of the ground, in
vertical position in the sustentation structure, places bigger tuchos of
teia, that according to researchers seems that it serves of alert the
birds, or bigger insects, preventing as soon as the teia is destroyed in
possible collisions. FOOD: small insects.
Golden Earth Tiger -- H. huwenum
Chinese Bird Spider is a fairly large specimen, with a typical legspan
of up to 8" (20 cm). It thrives in the tropical rain forests of southern
China and Vietnam, where it builds and lives in burrows up to several
feet deep, emerging to capture food. The bird spider preys on numerous
small insects and other creatures, such as cockroaches, crickets, and
Chinese Bird Spider is a rather aggressive species, one that will not
hesitate to bite humans if disturbed. Its venom is the subject of much
toxicology research, and while the effects of this spider's bite on man
is not well-documented, it is frequently lethal in small doses to
laboratory animals such as mice and rats. As a result, it is generally
regarded as a highly venomous specimen.The venom itself is a rather
complex neurotoxin, containing numerous compounds capable of blocking neurotransmitters.
(family Theraphosidae, order Aranedae) are also called bird-eating
spiders. These large, hairy spiders are usually pale brown to black,
with markings in shapes of pink, red, brown, or black. The fangs bite
vertically, not horizontally. They have eight small eyes, grouped
together at the front of the carapace. Most Tarantulas hunt on the
ground by night for arthropods and small vertebrates such as frogs and
mice. They use their large chelicerae to crush their prey, pour
digestive juices over the body, and then suck up the resulting liquid.
Some species live in trees, whereas others make burrows in the ground.
Females lay a batch of eggs in the burrow. An egg sac can be the size of
a golf ball and contain 1,000 eggs. The spiderlings stay in the burrow
until their first moult, after which they disperse to find food and to
make their own burrows. They can be found worldwide, especially in
subtropical and tropical areas, in deserts, forests, and a variety of
open habitats. Many Tarantulas live for 10-30 years and are kept as
pets. Because many are so large (body length: 3-12 cm), it is widely
assumed that their bites are fatal. Some have potent venom but many do
not, relying on size to subdue prey. The most poisonous species are
often relatively small.
Wasp Spider - Argiope bruennichi
Argiope bruennichi, or the wasp spider, is a species of orb-web spider distributed throughout central Europe, Northern Europe, north Africa and parts of Asia. Like many other members of the genus Argiope, (including St Andrew's Cross spiders), it shows striking yellow and black markings on its abdomen.
The spider builds a spiral orb web
at dawn or dusk, commonly in long grass a little above ground level,
taking it approximately an hour. The prominent zigzag shape called the stabilimentum, or web decoration, featured at the centre of the orb is of uncertain function, though it may be to attract insects.
When a prey item is first caught in the web, Argiope bruennichi will quickly immobilise it's prey by wrapping it in silk. The prey is then bitten and then injected with a paralysing venom and a protein dissolving enzyme.
male of the species is much smaller than the female. It can often be
seen in or near a female's web waiting for her to complete her final
moult, at which time she reaches sexual maturity. At this time and her
chelicerae (jaws) will be soft for a short time and the male may mate
with the female without the danger of being eaten.
Giant Wood Spider - Nephila maculata
Common names: Golden Orb Web Spider or Giant Wood Spider
Main features: Large (female only) shiny legs with red or yellow 'joints', builds large orb webs. Female: 20cm across from toe to toe, with a body about 3-5cm; males are only one-tenth as big, at 5-6mm.
World distribution: Tropical areas from Africa, India, China, Japan
across Southeast Asia to Northern Australia and the South Pacific
islands. Classification: Family Araneidae which build orb-webs. Nephila maculata is the largest of its genus.
The female buries her eggs in the ground. First she
digs a shallow hole with her strong mandibles and legs, which is then
lined with woolly silk. She lays her eggs on this silk, covers it with
another woolly layer then covers the whole assembly with camouflaging
debris and soil. Laying can take 4 hours. Spiderlings hatch with their
eggyolks still attached and don't have fully developed mouthparts, venom
glands, digestive tracts or spinning organs. They may stay together at
this stage. When they are fully developed, they have to disperse or they
will cannibalise each other. Role in the habitat: Like other
predators, the spiders control the population of prey. They are in turn
preyed upon by other creatures such as birds. In New Guinea, some tribes
consider them a tasty treat. The Golden Orb Web Spider's venom is
generally harmless to humans and they rarely bite even if we blunder
into and destroy their webs. The bite is just a scratch. They are clumsy
on the ground.
Cyclocosmia or "trapdoor spider" is a genus of spiders in the Ctenizidae family.
The abdomen of spiders in this genus is abruptly
truncated and ends in a hardened disc which is strengthened by a system
of ribs and grooves. They use this to clog the entrance of their 7 to
15cm deep vertical burrows when threatened, a phenomenon called phragmosis. Strong spines are located around the edge of the disc. The four spinnerets are found just anterior to it, with the posterior, retractable spinnerets particularly large. C. ricketti females are 28mm long, with a disc diameter of 16mm. Only the bottom portion of the burrow is silk lined.
The individual species are separated from each other
by the pattern of the abdominal disc, the number of hairs on its seam,
and the shape of the spermathecae.
