    Orb weavers are snare hunters - they build large and impressive webs.

    The silk of a cousin of that spider, the golden orb weaver, has even been made into clothing.

    This gown took 80 people five years to make. So it's extremely expensive - though I doubt that tbe spiders get a large cut of the profits.

    (Yes, that's the natural colour of the silk).
