The spider is a strong creature- I knew this fact. I had not realised how strong it was until I saw the branch of the Thunbergia vine being bent and used as a support by my resident Tiger Spider this afternoon. If you click on the photo, you can see the thin strands of the spider's web which have bent the branch by 90 degrees.
The Tiger Spider Poecilotheria regalis is a native of India and SriLanka. It weaves its web in tree canopies, and lies in wait for passing insects. It has distinctive tiger markings on its body and legs. In my garden, it has woven a web between the Amla tree with the Thunbergia vine, and the Sandalwood tree.
