  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 7 days 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 6 days ago
