spiders don't have nests. The female mates with the male, and the male either leaves, or gets eaten by the female. (balck widow. Females can be found carrying around an eggsac on their abdomen via the spinnerets. When the spiderlings hatch, they will ride on the mothers back for a week or two, before venturing off on their own. Wolf spider mothers are the only animals known to show this kind of care to their young. They also are inhibited from eating their young. Spider mothers spend most of their day hiding. Some species burrow when they are gravid (or with eggs), such as Hogna carolinenensis. Hogna carolinenensis, if bothered in their burrow too much, (or not allowed to burrow) will build a silk home in plant leaves and lay eggs. This might only be captive behavior though. Worldwide there are 37,500 different species known. By comparison, there are only 9,000 species of birds and 4,000 species of mammals. There are 2 main groups:
Mygalomorphs = primitive spiders, 4 book lungs (breathing apparatus); examples are tarantulas
tunnelweb spiders. Araneomorphs = true spiders, 2 book lungs (breathing apparatus); examples are
orbweb spiders hunting spiders. Spiders come in many different shapes and sizes. all the way from
the orbweb from Samoa (body 0.43 mm long, about the size of a pinhead) to the goliath or bird-eating tarantula, found in South America (body 90 mm long, leg span 250 mm). Thanks, i hate spiders, i despise them, they are the most spookiest things in the world and they scare the shit outta me. i just think they're kinda interesting.
P.S: a silver spider?! hmmmm
