...Or, possibly, "eek-a-boo!"
Those funnel-shaped webs you see all over the ground in the woods during warm weather? If the tenant hasn't moved on, here's what you'll find at the bottom of the funnel.
Unlike their "orb web" kin, funnel web spiders don't rely on a combination of spider silk and sticky stuff. Instead, they rely on naturally-occurring cracks and crevices as ready-made construction sites. They lie in wait either on the sheet of spider silk, or in their lair at the base of the funnel until another insect blunders into the web.
They're fast-moving hunters. As soon as prey insects touch the web, vibrations alert the spider to rush out and welcome their next meal.
