Our Extreme Adventure tour, it's not only zip lines and adrenaline, but also you can find one of the most interesting spiders in the world, the Golden Silk Weaver (Nephila Clavipes).
This name was given because of the Golden color of it's web, mainly for the amount of pollen it collects, catching various insects and animals with it's "Golden Silk" web. This web has attracted a lot of scientific interest lately due that its considered the most resilient fiber material known to men. It's been said that it is five times stronger tan Steel and more elastic tan nylon. Surely you will find a big Golden spider web at our basecamp to test these facts.
This Golden weaver has a big difference between male and female, where females have been found to have a leg span of 5 inches, almost the size of your hand, and to spin huge webs up to 3 feet wide and strong enough to trap small snakes, birds and bats.
An interesting fact is that, more tan one spider feeds from that spider web. Since the weaves can be really big, males and younger spiders feed from the smaller insects trapped in the web.
Don't need to worry much about should you come across these fabulous spiders. They only bite if provoked and even then their venom is harmless to humans. You can get to know this amazing spider any day of the year, since they like warm and tropical weather, so come and visit us and have an incredible time at any of our activities, where we not only have off-road trails but also the longest and fastest zip line in Mexico.
