Yet another study in Veracruz, Mexico, found that some orb-weaver
spiders will start to dismantle their webs during totality, and then rebuild them when the sun's face is revealed once again.
As they report today in an advance online paper in Nature Genetics, Penn scientists and their collaborators sequenced the full genome of the golden orb-weaver
spider (Nephila clavipes), a prolific silk-spinner that turns out to produce 28 varieties of silk proteins.
Led by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, a team of scientists conducted the largest-ever genome study of spider silks and identified 28 different varieties of silk protein that are produced by the golden orb-weaver
spider (Nephila clavipes).
Live exhibits will include the Goliath bird-eating tarantula, which is big enough to cover a dinner plate and the gold orb-weaver
spider which spins a web two metres in diameter.

In the summers, my younger brother and I would use old jars to raise caterpillars into butterflies or keep an orb-weaver
spider and watch it catch its prey.

The web of lines in the coated surface looks like scattered sticks and was inspired by the webs of the orb-weaver
spider, which reflect UV light so that birds can see them and thus do not destroy the webs by flying through them.
