Year: 2011 Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Red-legged Golden Orb-Web Spider (Nephila inaurata), lives in South Africa, Madagascar and other islands in the Indian Ocean. Like other members of the golden-orb spiders it can weave webs so strong that sometimes even birds and bats get caught. The spider has a leg-span of up to 10cm and is commonly kept in captivity.
