The Silken Web by Bert Brunet

215 x 280 x 15mm

A Natural History of Australian Spiders

Spiders differ in structure and habit more than any other creature we care to name. Their non-existent heads, over-abundant eyes, well-hidden mouths and uniquely divided torsos atop eight legs seem to challenge the conventional laws of nature. Spider silk can be stretched to over twenty per cent of its original length before breaking.

In 'The Silken Web' the author presents the history and biology of Australia's most commonly encountered spiders to identify them and understand their ways. His superb colour photographs and intricate line drawings depict many fascinating and rare observations of spider behaviour.
