Golden Silk Spider
Highlands Hammock State Park, Sebring, Florida
We were leading Nancy’s high school camping club on a three-day adventure. As is customary, we took these students on a hike the first night after dinner. Golden silk spiders (Nephila clavipes) get their name from the color of their silk, not their bodies. They are also called golden orb-weavers or banana spiders. This species can be found from North Carolina through Louisiana. The much-larger females (about two inches for the body alone) usually eats its mate.
