ok, here is the one...
http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/139...see more detail - but not yet perfect angle in my opinion Johan.
It is raining today, so ill have to get that photo tomorrow. It was interesting to see the moult, but only got there when it was already out and hanging upside down "drying". It is in the middle of a shrub cover area with the wind blowing slightly, so it kept turning round and round. But will get a pic!
Nope, not Nephilinae, it is an orb weaver, but from Tetragnathidae. Remember that your spotting just finished a moult, and the colouring is not 100% set.http://www.djaniwildlife.co.za/wildways-...
I agree with the science names Nephila, but not senegalensis. With a top view pic it will be easier.
Hi Johan, will do, he is a local here at Smith's Zoo!
The green and white lines along the sides are characteristics that stand out. I would like to see the back from the top after the recent moult.
