Impressive Web Builders

The Golden Orb-Weavers are a genus of araneomorph spider noted for the impressive webs they weave.

Webs that shine like gold

The Golden Orb-Weavers are named for the yellow color of the spider silk used to construct these webs.

Yellow threads of their web shine like gold in sunlight.

Magnificent Web Structure

The webs of most Golden Orb spiders are complex, with a fine-meshed orb suspended in a maze of non-sticky barrier webs. As with many weavers of sticky spirals, the orb is renewed regularly, if not daily, apparently because the stickiness of the orb declines with age.

Scroll through some Extra Facts


  • The golden silk orb-weavers (Nephila) are a genus of araneomorph spiders noted for the impressive webs they weave. Nephila consists of numerous species found in warmer regions around the world. They are also commonly called golden orb-weavers, giant wood spiders, or banana spiders.

  • Nephila produce large asymmetric orb webs up to one and a half meters in diameter. Nephila species remain in their webs permanently and therefore have a higher predation risk. There is a barrier web structure on either side of the main web to mitigate this risk. The golden silk orb weaver is named for the yellow color of the spider silk used to construct these webs.

  • Yellow threads of their web shine like gold in sunlight. Experimental evidence suggests that the silk’s color may serve a dual purpose: sunlit webs ensnare bees that are attracted to the bright yellow strands, whereas in shady spots the yellow blends in with background foliage to act as a camouflage. The spider is able to adjust pigment intensity relative to background light levels and color; the range of spectral reflectance is specifically adapted to insect vision.

The webs of most Nephila spiders are complex, with a fine-meshed orb suspended in a maze of non-sticky barrier webs. As with many weavers of sticky spirals, the orb is renewed regularly if not daily, apparently because the stickiness of the orb declines with age. When weather is good, Nephila often rebuild only a portion of the web. The spider will remove and consume the portion to be replaced, build new radial elements, then spin the new spirals. Typically, the golden orb-weaver first weaves a non-sticky spiral, with space for two to twenty more spirals in between (the density of sticky spiral strands decreases with increasing spider size). When she has completed the coarse weaving, she returns and fills in the gaps. Whereas most orb-weaving spiders remove the non-sticky spiral when spinning the sticky spiral, Nephila leave it. This produces a "manuscript paper" effect when the orb is seen in the sun: groups of sticky spirals reflecting light with "gaps" where the non-sticky spiral does not reflect the light.

The golden silk orb weaver targets many different organisms as prey, ranging from small flies and beetles to larger cicadas and locusts. As a result of their strong web structure small birds and bats can also become trapped and fed upon. Whilst most of the captured prey is relatively small compared to Nephila sp the majority of biomass consumed comes from larger more rare prey. Prey larger than 66% of the captors size accounts for just 16.5% of prey captured but 85% of prey consumed, indicating the spider is selective in its feeding habits. Throughout the maturation process spiders exhibit different feeding behaviours relative to their web type. Originally after birth the spiderlings inhabit a communal web and eat dead siblings and dead prey but do not attack any live organisms. After they move to individual webs the spiderlings begin to attack small live prey. As they increase in size they become more ambitious in their prey capture attempts through larger and stronger webs and greater attack confidence.

When males are fully mature they leave their webs to search for a suitable female, often using web characteristics to identify potential mates. Females are most likely to mate after their final molt at the beginning of adulthood and later in adulthood when they are feeding.There are often multiple males attempting to court the same female and thus competition for territory on the web occurs but is rarely physical as smaller males surrender area to larger ones. When males approach females they are often feeding, allowing the males to get closer without an aggressive response and also meaning the female is not moving. The male makes himself known by tapping on a web strand to ensure the female is amenable before proceeding to mate. When met with aggression males will stop approaching and remain in the same location until the female relaxes or they retreat. Females engage in multiple mating but there is no benefit to the offspring as a result; however the energy cost of repelling a male is higher than allowing him to copulate.
