Trapper

Trapper
A funnel weaver, taken today at Henry W. Coe State Park. Yesterday we spotted two tarantulas while driving up the narrow road to the state park: one sitting on the street, the other one right next to it. I therefore had high hopes to see some more today, but no luck: the only spiders we saw were these, somewhat smaller, funnel weavers. The total size of the funnel webs ranged from about 10 cm to about 70 cm and this guy’s funnel was about 50 cm in diameter. The center hole, in which this spider is waiting for its prey, was about 2 cm wide.
