  1. Many spiders living together in a very messy ball of webbing ,entangled in branches. Also all trapped insects are dragged into the ball of webbing. Posted one year ago

      1. There are some who live together for I gues at least some time. I have seen huntsman spiders together, but this is usually a batch of siblings who grow up together. Maybe it is the same in this case. I will keep searching. Posted one year ago
