Just saw these on the shed – very cute. They are all hugging together in a ball, about 2 cm, each spider is about 1.5 mm, if you disturb them at all, they all run off, ie the ball expands and the spiders descend downwards. Then they take about an hour to reassemble into a tight ball.

Videos on soon.

They are eating aphids and small flies.

All very interesting! See Gardens and Biodiversity on our site.
