The spider is found all over the world—from the tropics to the Artic, it is believed that there are over 40,000 known species of spiders on the earth today. What is unique about spiders is that they all produce silk. Some species use it to trap insects in webs, and it can also be used to aid in climbing, to protect egg sacs, and to wrap prey in preparation for consumption. Spiders are often referred to in popular culture, symbolism and culture. They have been attributed by numerous cultures with the origination of basket-weaving, knotwork, weaving, spinning and net-making. The ancient Moche people of Peru actually worshipped nature, and often put spiders in their art.
