The description of this YouTube video published by BBC Earth will intrigue every nature lover reading it. “Which marvel of nature can build a 2-metre Orb Web with a silk that ranks as the World’s toughest natural fibre? The answer is the Darwin’s Bark Spider and this real-life Spider Woman, no bigger than a thumbnail has baffled scientists with her web of steel.”

Click play to see the spider shooting an incredible 80-foot web. With some help of the wind, her web catches onto nearby trees and similar objects and she can start hunting for pray. After shooting the “bridge”, she’s quick to construct the rest of the web.
