Yellow garden spiders are orb-weaving arachnids that spin a circular web. Most spiders have two claws on each foot, but orb weavers have an extra claw to assist them in spinning their intricate webs. Females have a black upper side of the abdomen with symmetrical spots of brilliant yellow. Males are entirely yellow.
The image at the top of this page comes from Spider-Man comics. In one story arc, Spider-Man encounters a group of robbers who attack him with guns and his wall-crawling ability makes it easy for him to defeat them. One of the criminals is caught by Spider-Man and taken to the police station where Doctor Octopus (the main villain) can learn about his battle with Spider-Man. When Dr. Octopus tries to destroy the criminal with his mind controlled robot, he ends up destroying himself instead!
This comic book story was written by Gerry Conway and illustrated by John Romita Jr. They tell us that the robber who lost his fight with Spider-Man turned out to be a machine created by Dr. Octopus to protect him from the hero. This explanation makes sense because we know from other stories that Dr. Octopus can control other people's minds so they will do his dirty work for him. It also explains why the criminal killed Dr. Octopus when he tried to destroy him: He didn't want to kill the creator of his body!
Yellow garden spiders are feared by many people since they are huge and vividly colored. These bugs, however, do not bite unless they are handled or harmed. The agony of a yellow garden spider bite is comparable to a bee sting. In general, these arachnids are not dangerous, but they can be frightening to people when they infiltrate their houses.
Spiders belong to the Araneae class, which also includes scorpions, mites, and ticks. They are part of the dinnertime conversation every night as people wonder how many were killed during the day. There are over 70,000 species of spider worldwide, most of which are harmless to humans. However, some species contain chemicals that can cause symptoms such as skin irritation or nausea after being ingested.
Spiders have eight legs, six eyes, and a body length ranging from 2mm to 12mm. They live in almost all terrestrial habitats, including yards, gardens, and fields. Some species are found only in certain climates or environments such as tropical forests or deserts.
Spiders use their amazing abilities to capture insects. Most species have special hairs on their bodies that can bend away from their head like bristles on a brush. When the spider senses an insect's presence, it extends these hairs toward the prey item. The spines on the end of the hair feel like little needles when pressed against someone else's skin, so most animals don't touch them.
The abdomens of certain orb-weaver spiders are spiny, smooth, or irregularly formed. The majority of nocturnal orb weavers are brown or gray in hue. Diurnal species have brilliant yellow or orange hues with black patterns. These spiders tend to be small, about 1/8 inch (3 mm) long.
Orb weavers have eight hairy legs, three pairs of which are used for walking. The remaining five legs are attached to the abdomen and serve as a trap for their prey. They use their fangs to inject venom into their victims and weave their sticky silk among the nerves of their prey to stop it from moving. Then they wrap themself around the paralyzed insect and digest it over time.
Spiders play an important role in the ecosystem because without them there would be too many pests. We need these animals to keep the insect population under control. However, some people think they're scary and try to protect themselves by keeping pets such as snakes and scorpions. This is not recommended because these animals can die if someone tries to kill them by hand. Also, spiders spread diseases such as cancer and hepatitis. People who are allergic to insects should not watch videos of spiders because they might cause an attack.
In conclusion, orb weavers are colored brown or gray because they're made of muscle and bone, not because they're born that way.
