Description

(Nephila maculata)

This spider's common name comes from the colour of its large web but it could have just as easily been called the Bird-trapping Spider! With a permanent, strong web measuring one meter (just over 3 feet) in diameter and which is strategically placed in flyways between trees, it is no wonder that small birds and insectivorous bats sometimes get tangled up in it. The females of the Golden Orb reach an imposing 45mm (nearly two inch) body length but they are basically harmless. These spiders are placid enough that they even allow other small species of spiders to cohabit their web in a symbiotic relationship (each contributes something which benefits the other). Commonly encountered in the Wet Tropics, the Golden Orb can also be seen around buildings.
