In 2008, a picture came up in the media (from Australia) showing a Golden orb-weaving spider that was eating a bird. In this post, we’ll cover the habitat, size, webs, benefits in garden, venom (deadly?), and uses of their silk.
Banana/ Golden Orb Spiders/ giant wood spiders are in the Nephila genus and are yellow and black colored with stripy legs, but could range from greenish-yellow to red. Banana spiders mainly live in the warmer areas.
