So, I'm challenging myself to wrap all gifts I give more creatively than in newly-bought paper.
Females can reach 1. Snakes aren't the only creatures that molt. Spiders periodically shed their old exoskeletons as they grow. Watch this tarantula crawl out of its old exoskeleton!
A spider's molted exoskeleton. Not from Argiope aurantia. Source The zigzagging line in a yellow garden spider's web is called a stabilimentum.
Source Spectacular Spiderwebs Writing spiders spin strong, distinctive webs, which can be up to two feet in diameter. Lightning-Bolt Web Decorations a. Stabilimenta Yellow garden spiders create zigzagging lines that look like lightning bolts down the middle of their webs, which is why they are often called writing spiders.
These lines are called stabilimenta because they were first thought to provide structural support stability to the webs. Today, scientists debate the purpose of stabilimenta.
Do they attract prey? A study published in Behavioral Ecology showed that the zigzagging lines actually reduced the number of prey captured by up to 30 percent. Some researchers hypothesize that the purpose of stabilimenta is to deter birds from crashing into the webs. In any case, only diurnal spiders ones that are active during the day use stabilimenta.
Like all orb-weaver spiders there are about orb-weaver species in North America alonethey are fast and prolific spinners that have three claws per foot on each of their legs.
That's one more claw than most spiders have. Orb weavers use their extra claws to help them handle the threads as they spin, allowing them to spin complicated webs in a few hours.
Some spiders can make as many as seven different types of silk, though most only make four or five kinds. They Eat Their Webs Each Night Each night, Argiope aurantia eat the central part of their webs, leaving the anchor threads intact, and spin them anew.
They do this for several reasons: The sticky silk that captures prey is rendered useless when coated with dust or pollen. Eating the old silk allows spiders to reabsorb and reuse its proteins to create new silk. Ingesting dew-covered silk allows spiders to take in much-needed moisture especially before molting.
The old silk may contain tiny insects that provide extra nutrients for the spider. The egg sacs of the yellow garden spider are large and brown. Source A yellow garden spider's egg sac can hatch over 1, spiderlings.
Source Egg Sacs and Spring Spiderlings In late summer, female Argiope aurantia produce three or four large, papery egg sacs.
Rounded and brown, the sacs look as if they're made from paper bags. Just like their webs and the spiders themselves, the sacs are large and easy to spot.
This winter, even on the bleakest days, I could see their egg sacs in the shrubbery, a welcome sign of life in the otherwise barren landscape.
Each sac contains —1, eggs and can release over 1, spiderlings. However, only a very small of the babies survive their early spiderling-hood. Protecting the Egg Sacs From Weather and Predators To keep the sacs safe over the winter, the female spiders weave them into their webs.
In our shrubbery, a female writing spider wove several webs for her sacs, attaching them to stems and leaves with webbing.
The webbing not only holds the sacs in place, but it also provides them with protection from the elements and predators, such as ants, wasps and birds.White Gift Bags found in: Small White Kraft Paper Gift Bags, 3-ct.
