The Orb-Weaver spider name comes from the round shape of the webs they produce from their non-sticky silk. They are the most common builders of spiral wheel-shaped webs, which are created by the females. They can be found in forests, fields, around homes, and gardens. Orb-weaver spiders have two body segments, eight eyes, and eight hairy legs. There are over 3000 species world-wide. They are considered harmless and have low-toxicity venom. This Cat-Faced Spider is distinguished by two horn-shaped growths on their large abdomen. Their colors will vary with the seasons.
