SPIDERS

Spiders are quite common in Florida, and can be found anywhere where insects can be found. They range in size from the huge orb-weaving (golden silk orbweaver) and yellow garden spider to the tiny jumping spiders. Some spin magnificant webs, waiting to catch their prey in mid-flight. Others, such as the wolf spiders and jumping spiders, actively hunt their prey. Some spiders lie motionless on or in flowers waiting to ambush their prey that fly to them.
