I do not like spiders in general. They are creepy. They have webs. They are where I want to be.

Banana Spiders or Golden Silk Spiders (Nephila clavipes) are at the top of  the list. Their webs are strong and resilient and big. Big as in blanket size. I kid you not.

Banana Spiders are large as well at least 4 inches across. Their legs are color segmented and thin like needles. Their bodies are banana shaped in greens and blacks.

Stepping into one web feels like taunt sticky string.

Enough said.
