Banana Spiders – The Fantastic Webs They Weave

Golden silk orb weavers are known to Floridians as banana spiders. They can bite, but it’s nothing to worry about. Taking their pictures is as close as I would recommend getting. If you ever visit Florida and you see one, don’t be scared. But take a careful look at its web, because their intricate work is astounding, and oftentimes they span quite a few feet.
