LOL!!! It was a huge structure armedeus.4 My photos don't do it justice. Protection for sure, I could not get close enough for a good shot of the spider, and snaring, there were plenty of food bits 'n' pieces in amongst the web.

armadeus.4 4 years ago the tent structure for protection or for snaring prey or both? If my face came into contact with that without knowing what it was...I think I would shriek :D
