Giant web woven by a variety of spider families

My sister’s worst nightmare. And mine to some extent. Spiders…collaboration. Puts new meaning in the phrase “social web“.

Giant web woven by a variety of spider families
“Scientists report that the massive 200-yard spider web recently discovered in Texas’s Lake Tawakoni State Park was woven by spiders from many different species working collaboratively. Thousands of spiders have rebuilt the web three times after it’s been torn up by rain and wind. Texas A&M University entomologist Allen Dean has identified spiders from such families as funnel web weavers, sac spiders, orb weavers, mesh web weavers, wolf spiders, pirate spiders, and others working on the web.”

  1. My RSS feed for this site isn’t working for some crazy reason.

    Did you do something to the blog that made it happen? This is the only feed issue I have.

    I use Feedburner or the on on IE7. There’s no other issues with feeds, except this one.

  2. Hmm. I just posted this new entry and it came out fine through my feed reader (Outlook 2007′s built in RSS reader). That makes me think that the feed itself is fine. I haven’t changed anything about it since I shifted the site over to WordPress, which was a long time ago. Sorry you’re having problems.
