Pelican Spiders (Family Archaeidae)
Also known as assassin spiders or spidsnuck, pelican spiders are a unique family of spiders native to Madagascar, southern Africa and parts of Australia. These spiders get the name pelican from their uniquely long necks and elongated jaws. The spider uses these two weird features to prey exclusively on other spiders, which earns them the name assassin. With a long neck and jaws this spider specialist can safely avoid its opponents venomous jaws, and kill/eat it with ease.

Fact Seagull Says…
The Banana Spider, found in South America and some parts of Central America, has a potent venom that induces painful, deathly erections in Male Humans.
“Banana Spider” is another name for the Brazilian Wandering Spider. It comes from the tendency to hide in bananas/banana plants, unfortunately for grocery shoppers~
This beautiful yellow cape is an awesome work of art and patience. It was woven out of spider silk, specifically, the silk from more than one million Golden silk orb-weaver spiders:
“Textile expert Simon Peers and fashion designer Nicholas Godley [Godley & Peers] collaborated to create this stunning embroidered cape out of golden spider silk. Both residing in Madagascar, the two paired up to achieve a process that hadn’t been attempted for more than 100 years—they wanted to successfully harvest golden orb spider silk for weaving, and they were quite successful.
Working with a large team of more than 80 people, including spider handlers, they spent three years regularly searching the country’s landscape for golden orb spiders. When an individual spider was captured, it would be harnessed, and then milked to produce anywhere from 100-160 feet—sometimes even up to 400 yards—of thread, and then released back into nature. Peers and Godley estimate having milked approximately 1.2 million of these fascinating creatures.”

They didn’t even have to dye it; the silk was naturally a rich golden yellow, and its softer and lighter than traditional silk.
Now I have another reason to cite when I tell people why I don’t kill spiders.
