Golden Orb-Weaver Spider Web

"Here we have got spider silk. [It is] an orb web from the golden orb-weaver  spider. We have got a 13cm diameter segment here but the web is more typically about a meter. These are pretty large spiders that naturally produce this wonderful material which is one of the strongest materials known." - Beth Mortimer, Oxford Silk Group
