Fun Fall Facts – Spider Webs

Did you know that ‘spider webs’ are what we call webs that are still being used, while ‘cob webs’ is the name for webs that are abandoned?

The silk that spiders use for their webs is amazing because it’s strong, elastic, and sticky.  Scientists are still trying to reproduce the properties of spider webs for human use!  A spider’s silk has as much tensile strength as steel!
