Ingenuity takes on many forms → 1. A Bolas spider (Mastophora cornigera) captures a passing male moth by using a sticky line of silk as a lasso | 2. The fearsome-looking gladiator spider (Dinopis sp.) ensnares a cricket by casting a small but carefully constructed square web over it | 3. A diving bell spider (Argyroneta aquatica), the only kind known to live fully underwater, plucks bubbles of air from the water surface to build a ‘diving bell’ web, which is essentially a large air bubble inside which the spider can comfortably breathe and consume prey.
