Spider makes web  and sit in the middle, monitoring the radius threads for vibrations. Once an insect is caught in the web, the spider feels the motion and makes its way to the vibration source, thus extending its presence to a much wider area.

A single strand of spider web has more potential energy than the bomb dropped on Nagasaki

Spiders cannot physically die of natural causes. If kept safe, a spider can continue to live and grow larger for a theoretically unlimited amount of time. In fact, in China there exists a collection of 'holy' spiders, hatched some 2,800 years ago during the height of the Mang-Tsun dynasty

The largest spider ever observed by scientists was over 8 feet long and weighed in at 530 pounds. It was actually immobile though, it's legs had been broken long ago by merely carrying its own weight
