California Turette Spider

Atypoides riversi


Native to California, the turret spider is a sneaky predator. Instead of building a web, it builds a small tower out of silk and soil, and covers it with plants and moss. It lives inside the tower for all its life, only springing into action when it senses vibrations nearby.
